So, on their own, each card will capture fine...  and using the ati
driver of pundit-r I can use all 3 tuners simultaneously...  BUT, if I
try to use the TV-out of the 350 to watch live tv with either of the
PVR-500mce's tuners, I get stuttering and funny audio..   I've got vbi
turned off...  Playing previously recorded files by any tuner over
pvr-350 tv-out are no problem.  Using the tv-out while recording with
either of the 500's tuners will give stuttering and audio problems in
the recordings.

Will try moving all cards into kt400 based box later tonight to see if
reproduces..  thanks for any ideas...  Mike
