With DVB, the audio is part of the received mpeg data stream, it comes 
out of the DVB card and gets dumped straight to disk. No messing about 
with compressing etc. You only need one audio card that's the one that 
outputs the sound that you listen to. I have two DVB-T cards in my 
Mythbox, and only the onboard Nforce audio,  thats connected via a  
3.5mm jack to the AV amp... Works like a champ!
