Try updating to the latest ivtv driver (0.4.2). There
was previously some issues with DMA which were causing
sound from recordings made on PVR-350 cards to lose
sound. The most obvious way to see if that is the

Otherwise, make sure you have the latest firmware and
that MythTV is properly configured for your cards
(there was a change in ivtv 0.4.1 or 0.4.2 that
changed the names/numbers of the inputs - when I
upgraded, I had to re-run mythtv-setup).
It can work, because I have the same setup (PVR-350
and PVR-500), and with ivtv 0.4.2 everything is
