That is incorrect.  /dev/video16 is the DECODER device.  That's that that
setting is for.  If you set that to /dev/video0, your OUTPUT witll try to
write to your tuner.

The PVR-350 OUTPUT on a 1-card system should be /dev/video16.

To the OP, can you get any output from the /dev/video16 device?  Have you
tried the dd if=/dev/video0 of=/dev/video16 bs=64k test?  Do you get output
then?  Chack this thread:
