You don't have to jumper anything for recording with the PVR250/350,
the issue here is with playback.  If you playback with a video card
and your sound card there shouldn't be a problem if set up correctly. 
As was mentioned already in this thread, playback through the 350
means the audio does not go through your sound card, only out the
350's jacks.  So in that case jumping the 350 outs to the sound card
ins will allow the sound card to output everything as you want/need.
