When I realized that the PVR-350 decoder had too many disadvantages 
compared to an nvidia video card, I simply blacklisted the PVR-350 
framebuffer module--then used the PVR-350 as if it were a PVR-250/150.  
I think back then it was something like:

blacklist ivtvfb

Then just configure and use the nvidia video card.
