I've just upgraded from 0.18 to 0.20, I went the fresh install route with
an o/s and HD upgrade at the same time so I could keep the original HD to
immediately fail back to.

Everything has gone smoothly except for one failure, all my recordings
from my DVB card (Nova-T) play their audio through the soundcard rather
than through the PVR-350, the PVR-350 recorded stuff works fine.
Audio _is_ working for the DVB recorded stuff, just through the soundcard,
not the PVR-350.

Previously I had it set up so all the 'TV' audio went through the PVR-350,
DVD/music/videos went through the soundcard which worked perfectly cos for
'normal' TV we don't want the full surround sound etc, while we do for

I know it used to work fine on 0.18, I've played with all the playback 
PVR350 options to no avail. I had a play with the dvb encoder settings,
telling it to record all/normal/audio only and still nothing.

I know there was an option within the setup for 0.18 to do with mpeg (I
can't remember the exact wording and I don't want to swap HD's just to
check :-) ), which was checked on 0.18, that has now vanished, dunno if
that is anything to do with it.

For information: I was originally running SuSE 9.1 with Mythtv 0.18[0]
compiled from source, now SuSE 10.1 with mythtv 0.20 (identical
hardware[1]) and rpm's from packman.

I don't want to go through the whole 'pass through' audio thing unless I
_really_ have to because I'm using the PVR-350 scart lead and I'd have go
to the component cables and mess about with sorting some kind of pass
through/swap for the audio to the stereo.

I'm probably missing something really stupid but I can't for the life of
me find out what, can anyone help?
