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
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.
