I have a PVR-250 and the only audio jack it has is an input not an
output.  It's used when you are feeding an s-video signal to the video
input as s-video doesn't have any audio.  The PVR-250 captures straight
to MPEG-2 format which contains embedded audio.  IOW, you don't have
anything to worry about as each card will embed the proper audio into
the capture stream, and you should remove the jumper going to your
sblive as it is connecting two input jacks together.
