Hi everybody,

Recently Avermedia has released two new PVR type cards called the Ultra TV 
Media Center 500 and 550.  The 500 has an mpeg2 encoder and the 550 also has 
a decoder.  Does anyone know anything about these cards?  Will they work With 
Mythtv?  Do they use the same chips as the PVR 250/350?  

These things are pretty cheap, I can get the 500 for $132 CDN, and the 550 for 
$155.  If they worked, it would be a pretty nice upgrade or addition to my 
Matrox Rainbow Runner G.
