Haven't used a 5500 card. But as for the PVR-150, there's pretty much
no way that you need to patch an audio cable to a sound card for it to
work... so I'm assuming you're talking about the 5500 there, right?
I have a PVR-150 with the IR connected - I'm using it in receive mode.
You're going to want to check the list archives and the wiki for
supportability. If it didn't work, someone would have screamed about it
a WHILE ago...
