I'd like to do this, but unfortunately none of the supplied cables for my 
card can do Svideo via SCART _and_ audio, both from LiveTV/recordings and 
MythVideo/MythDVD, at the same time. The SCART cable I got is 
PVR350-to-SCART, using the 350:s combined connector in one end and a 
sealed SCART connector in the TV end - with most GFX cards you get a 
breakout cable with a standard SVideo connector... I just got the SCART 
cable and a _composite_ breakout cable :(

So. I went and got a SCART audio patch that sits between the TV and the 
SCART connector, to connect to my sound card - but it turns out that if I 
connect it, the sound in the PVR350<->SCART cable won't work, so now I get 
sound in MythDVD and MythVideo, but not in LiveTV/View recordings...

Now I'm just hoping that someone figures out how to pump sound directly 
into the PVR350:s TV-out together with the raw non-MPEG2 video... =)
