hmmm....I glanced at the datasheet a couple of weeks ago and it didn't
seem like the multiplexor supported stereo audio in, just a microphone.
The marketing brochures also only refer to it as a video decoder as
opposed to an A/V decoder....what spawned this was that I was looking at
the Fujiplus HDTV card , it also has s-video/composite and RCA audio in
, but it is apparent that there are additional ICs on board, which, from
my glance at the BT's datasheet, I took to be audio decoder/processing
However, I freely admit that I could be completely wrong.
