If Dick Tracy had tried talking in to his shoe instead of his watch it
might not have worked so well. His shoe would not have been the right
tool for the job (unless he borrowed it from Maxwell Smart).

Similarly, MythTV is probably not the right tool for the job you're
trying to do. The PVR-350 is probably also not the right tool for this
particular job. If you need real-time video you'll probably be better
off with some other app and a plain framebuffer card.
