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 
related.

However, I freely admit that I could be completely wrong.
