I have followed the instructions in the mythtv doc using the command 
line and the kmix GUI. Neither seem to do the trick. Interesting note is 
that if I hook up a pair of headphones to the PVR-350's audio-out, I do 
not get any sound when viewing live TV or a recorded show. Makes me 
think it is a PVR-350 issue before the Kmix settings come into play?? 
Thoughts? Thanks
