Thanks. It contains the following text:

The PVR-350 is unique amongst the Hauppauge PVR-x50 cards in that it
also supports audio output, but you need to connect that audio output to
something. There are two courses of action you may take:

1. Take the audio output from the PVR-350 and plug it into an input
   on a sound card on your machine. You may then use MythTV's
   internal audio controls.

If I need to do that to capture audio via the sound card, then don't I
have to do it for both tuner cards? Sorry if I'm being overly thick.
