I have an M12000...I played around with the VIA a bit, and opted for the 
PVR-350.  That works very well; the Chris Kennedy ivtv drivers are 
really pretty stable at this point, and the quality is a lot better than 
the VIA.  I would recommend buying the 350; it's a more-travelled 
installation/troubleshooting route, and a better card.
