 	...and does give some advanced quality-enhancing options to cheaper 
non-mpeg encoding hardware.  For a 350MHz PII, you should be able to do 
on-the-fly deinterlacing or denoising, but it'll take most of the CPU to do it.

 	I can say that I've done mythtv on a dual Celeron 300->450 with a 
software-only capture card.  Watching TV wasn't really doable for more than a 
proof of concept.  I had to reduce the resolution to something quite low.  With 
a PVR-250 and a video card with XV support, you should be able to 
simultaneously record/watch.
