Use Jarod's guide on how to setup the PVR-350.  Make sure you expand all
the sections dealing with the PVR-350.  My first pass through I missed a
critical step that removed some horizontal lines on the screen.

I used the standard VGA monitor until it looked as if it was working
correctly then followed Jarod's guide to modify xorg files to output the
display via the PVR-350 to the TV and created new initrd so it would
boot up that way.  

There was a learning curve but with the info in the guide and some help
from the list it was actually easier than I thought it would be.
