[mythtv-users] software mpeg decoding performance

I'm deciding whether or not to buy a PVR-250/500 or 350. I have a
Radeon 9700 AIW video card and I'm thinking about shelling out for a
DVI->HDMI cable such that I can connect it digitally to my HD TV,
instead of using the s-video from a PVR-350.
I'm wondering how much CPU resources are needed to decode MPEG? I
want to be able to fast forward and rewind without and slow downs.
My computer is a P3-800MHz. Do I need a hardware decoder to get this
kind of performance?
BTW- Is there an efficient way to search the mailing list archives???
