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.
