I've been using MythTV for several months now, and have built a
dedicated PVR system around it, based on a Celeron 2.4GHz with 512MB

I use the software MPEG-4 encoding and I'm getting approximately 1-2 GB
per 1 hour of recoring.  I used to use RT jpeg, but I found it to be too
wasteful.  I'm having some definite recording quality issues, but feel
that this may be the fault of the capture cart (a cheap Wonder VE).

Is the PVR250/350 the "way to go" on capture cards?
