But using the adapter, which allows S-Video or Composite output *and* 
R/L audio output, and having the sound output (from your external tuner) 
plugged in to the PVR-350 audio input using an 1/8" jack to stereo RCA 
(a.k.a. "Y") adapter makes a whole world of difference...

Although you can probably plug it into your sound card now since you've 
already learned the steps for debugging missing sound with alsamixer's 
CAPTUR/mute settings...

Don't feel stupid--just "temporarily" ignorant of the correct setup.  
And now that you know, you're no longer ignorant...
