Have a PVR-350 in a Silverstone LC-02 case and had some weird problems with colors changing after a few minutes (weird colors) and have the solution to this weird behaviour.
Seems that these cards are very prone to heat problems. Put a small fan directly in front of it and all problems are gone.
In the case of the Silverstone LC-02: move the fan on the right front (pulls heat out of the case) to the left back next to the PCI and AGP slot and let it blow in cool air.
