use a PVR350 for tv output then. Since you don't plan on doing any gaming,
etc. that requires a GPU of sorts then the 350's tv output will be fine.
in order to use the tuner on the 350 with Myth you'll need to set up this
front end as a slave backend. If you don't plan on using a tuner on this
frontend then just find a cheap nvidia card with TV-out (XvMC enabled if
requried by cpu limitations) instead.
