I still remember trying to set up my PVR350, when I knew little about
linux, and nothing about Myth.  It took me about three evenings!

It's difficult when you don't know what supposed to happen at each stage.

If you follow Jarod Wilson's guide you won't go wrong.  He covers the
PVR350 very well, and you're modprobing looks OK.

What are you doing when you get the snow?  ie are you trying to output
X to the S-Video output, in which case you want to look at your
xorg.conf file and xorg.log.0.  Or are you running Myth on the console
and trying to select a channel?

BTW you need to have your channels set up in the database, before
you'll see any pictures using Myth.

Sorry if you're way beyond this stage, but you didn't give much to go on.
