You are right. I have found one thread call "MPEG-4 Decoder hardware" where 
some people indicate there well working mpeg-4 output with celeron466 or 
P2-333. One person recommend to use the Xv output. I will give him a try.
But nobody in this thread have pointed out the configuration.

The other thread I found called "mpeg2 hardware decoder" has only a little 
of information for me.

The szenario descriped by you will be fine for me.
I am looking for a solution to send my video to the PVR350 hardware decoder 
and from there to my TV-Monitor.

Today I hear that the PVR350 only can decode self encoded MPEG streams? Is 
that right?

no panic
