You can run X on it, using ivtvxdriver, but you will find it is cpu
heavy and on my 2.8 ghz celeron video was a little jerky.

You then have the issue of sound coming out the sound card rather than
the pvr-350, u can solve that by routing the pvr-350 sound output into
your sound card line in, provided the line in can be output to your
amp/speakers etc, if not then you have to use aplay and arecord to
capture the line in and play it back at the same time, and that
introduces a delay causing the sound to go out of sync.
