I won't address the other points at this time (although I believe some 
of them to be solvable as well), but the issues raised in the 745 ticket 
are largely a non-issue now that xv support works so well with the 350. 
I stopped using the onboard decoder and switched to xv some time ago 
after I figured out how to set it up for maximum video quality and never 
looked back. The 350 still provides a better NTSC picture than any video 
card I've seen, even if you're only using it for video out and not for 
HW decoding.

If you want HDTV output then the 350 obviously won't work, but for 
standard def the only thing I've found that it can't do that would be 
nice is OpenGL support.
