The 350 can only provide hardware assistance on mpeg2 streams, but with 
the right codec or enough cpu power, you can play whatever the hell you 
want out the 350. It just isn't optimized for anything but mpeg2.

My M10000 w/350 couldn't play back Myth recordings transcoded to mpeg4 
worth beans, but using -vo x11 in mplayer, I could play xvid and ffmpeg 
mpeg4 rips just fine.

I just don't bother transcoding anything. Hard drive space is cheap, 
and there isn't much on TV I'd ever want to keep around for very long 
after watching it once (but ymmv there).
