Why do you need to pump the audio from the PVR-350 into the line-in? The 
350 should encode the audio stream straight into the MPEG.

Hence when you play back the MPEG, you should get the sound. SPDIF is 
usually quite easy to do in this fashion provided you have a card with good 
ALSA/SPDIF support - e.g. pretty much any AC97 with SPDIF, and all the 
SPDIF-enabled emu10k1 variants.
