I'm with you.. i've posted on this list many times if you use the X 
driver the PVR350 can playback any type of video format. I watch 
divx/xvid/mpeg2/etc all the time thru my pvr350's tvout and it looks 

now what i *do* have problems with is ROMS, it's not fast enough to keep 
up with any games NES/SNES/MAME but i can live with that.
