Not sure about the ivtv stuff I have retired my 350 for tv playback..

I don't believe the pvr350 can.. If you know otherwise I would love to see it be
able to playback ts files (even if a ps transform is used in ivtvdecoder).  I
didn't spend much time on it though..

10 inputs!  Wow.. I want one.. libs/libmythtv/dvbdiseqc.cpp I think you will
have to add a new diseqc type for that puppy though, so it will touch more than
just that one file.. A line or two in videosource.cpp..
