It is the 350's high quality decoder that is no longer actively
supported in MythTV. The on-board encoder is still well-supported in
the ivtv driver.

I would also be sure to check the ivtv-users mailing list to keep
abreast of any current issues with the 150/500 cards, such as
unsupported tuners etc.
