Hm  ..

I dont' really know enough about the drivers to help you here.

If I was you I'd check my leads (I presume you're using the ones that
came with the PVR 350, but they gave me several different types so
there is scope for getting it wrong), and then I'd be stuck too.

You have ticked the 'use PVR 350 for output' in the frontend setup, haven't you?

Good Luck
