Perhaps I need to add some details in regards to question 1 below.
I am aware thgat I cannot at the moment use the mpeg decoding on the
pvr350 to watch dvd's, so what I am actually asking is whether people
have had success with other optimizations in regards to watching dvd's
over the TV-out of the hauppauge pvr-350.

Thought I should clarify that, lest it look like I hadn't searched the
archives first.
