Sorry. Couldn't figure that out from what was left in the reply to
which I responded.
So, did you check the box:
TV audio through PVR-350 only
Normally, PVR-350 audio is looped into a sound card; here you can
indicate when that is not the case. MythTV cannot control TV volume when
this option is checked.
