 From what I remember when reading reviews prior to plumping for the 
PVR-250, the 3.5mm jack is for audio input into the SCART lead (for adding 
audio to what's outputted to the TV? I dunno), and doesn't have anything to 
do with the operation of the PVR-350 per se. SCART, like SVideo, is meant 
to contain all the video and audio data in itself, so plugging things into 
the sound card shouldn't be needed.

This is very interesting. I'm utterly staggered that their manual (from 
www.hauppauge.co.uk) doesn't have any mention at all of any SCART cables, 
although this review mentions it for using audio input.
