That case IS what I have running. It works perfectly. But remember, you
have to install it in two phases: First get the PVR 350 to display the
recordings (using the decoder); Next, set X to use the PVR 350's
frambuffer, i.e. have the menus of mythtv displayed on the TV.
So you may need a monitor next to your TV when install, repair and
upgrade the machine. All the other time, you really don't need a monitor.
I hope that's clear enough.
