Quality wise, there is no comparison, the 350 wins
hands down. But, I didn't use the MPEG-2 decoder
because in order to adjust the volume on it, I had to
make an external script to adjust the volume on
line-in (and I lost the OSD for that). Using Xv on
the 350 gives decent results also, but not quite as
good as the MPEG decoder.
Gees, now you're makihng me think that I want to start
using the PVR-350 output again... I keep
flip-flopping on that. :)
