Thanks, for the info.  I am using the TV-OUT so it looks like I'll be on EBay for a PVR250.

are you using the tv-out from your 350? if you are you wont be able to 
use any other card besides a pvr250 card.. since nothing elese will 
decode on the pvr350..

Because of this I now have the greenlight to put in a 2nd capture card so that we can record two shows at once (plus watch live TV while recording).  I currently own a PVR350, and I'm wondering what people think is a good lowcost capture card to go with it.  I was thinking about the WinTV Go, but see from reading the archives that the newer chipset versions aren't well supported.  
>I'd love to keep this new card in the $50-$60 so that kinda removes the PVR250 from the mix unless I potentially get lucky on EBay or something.  Ideally I would like the same capture quality as the PVR350 and onboard capture hardware encoding.  Also, I'm hoping that whatever I get plays nicely with the PVR350.
