My memory is not the greatest, but someone asked this question a few weeks back, and I think someone responded that they driver code and those apps you mention don't have the support to use the decoder and then route it's output back to the system memory for use in on the PC screen or elsewhere.. Essentially if you use the decoder the video will wind up going out the television out port on the PVR 350.
