[mythtv-users] Stereo sound with PVR-250

I'm recordning from the Tuner. I have tried the same card in WindowsXP (the
same computer, dual boot setup) and there the card works perfectly and I get
stereo sound from all channels that transmit in stereo.

I have not tried the recordning on another computer yet, will try that
tomorrow, but I don't think that it will make any difference. When I play
music or other movies (.avi, .mpg, dvd etc) i get stereo sound.

When I play a video captured with "cat /dev/video0 > /tmp/test.mpg" using
mplayer "mplayer /tmp/test.mpg" it reports that the file have two channel
sound but I can hear that the sound is not in stereo.

What are you recording from?  Tuner or A/V in?  If you're recording from 
the tuner, then the problem is probably your audio output, not the 
-250.  If the -250 is really recording mono sound and the source is 
definitely stereo, then you've got a bad card.

More likely, either (1) you've misconfigured your tuner type, (1a) or if 
you're not using the tuner, does your audio input to the PVR-250 have a 
stereo plug?, or (3) your recordings are just fine, but there is a 
problem with the way your audio output is configured, which has nothing 
to do with the PVR-250.  To check (3), try playing a recording on a 
different machine.
