Well, it doesn't have analog audio left/right, but the
Hauppauge WinTV card (model 401) supports S-Video in,
with a 3.5mm headphone jack input (stereo), and works
with btaudio (so no connection to a sound card is

The driver is fairly stable, and I don't see why 4 of
them wouldn't work together.  The trick though is
making sure that the cards you get have the BT878 chip
on them, as I think some of the newer ones have newer
Conexant chips that aren't fully supported.
