[mythtv-users] Confused about audio and a couple of other things

So, say that I have DirecTV but I do not have the DVR for it. The DirecTV set top box has the composite video and audio outputs that come out of the set top box and into my tv. (the yellow, red, and white ones). From what I can see, The WinTV PVR 150 has the yellow composite video input, and a Line-In that is the standard headphone jack. Would getting a cable converter from the yellow/red jacks to a regular headphone jack and plugging it into the line-in on the card give me stereo audio correctly?

What about the guide. Will MythTV work correctly with the directv guides?

Also, what about TV-Out. I do not believe I saw any connections for actually taking the signal out of the card, or would that be coming out of my regular video card with the computer if I want it to go to my TV.

Thanks! And sorry about the noobish-type questions, just want to be sure I buy the correct things I need for it.
