yes i agree
i have (yes i am sad) 4 boxes for myth
i have an athlon in the sittingroom with a 350 and some sort of nvidia for 
tv-out. software decoding (so only really need a 250) and quality is 

i have an epia-m9000 in the bedroom with a 350 which does encoding/decoding. 
tv quality is excellent but (and it is a big but) sound loopthrough and no 
acceleration for X

i have this other epia-m9000 which i was trying to get the epia tv-out working 
on. having both enabled me to do side by side comparisons.

now what i would be interested to know is if anybody had good quality output 
from the epia? if the answer was yes, that indeed somebody had good output 
then at least i would know it was worth continuing on my quest. however, if 
it is never going to cut it then i'll cut my losses and try to make the 350 
decoding configuration the one of choice.
