    when I played around with this sort of thing a year or two back, I had the problem that my TV card did not have an audio out socket. It, at that time anyway, was the case that you had to feed the audio from the TV card to your sound card (line in), or you could try using sox to do it internally (never really worked properly).


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    Thanks for your reply. I am doing it the same way, that is connecting the audio out of the card to the line-in of sound card but it still doesnot work. Can you please help it out.

    open a mixer like alsamixer or kmix and see if line in is turned off or very low.

    I agree with Marlowe I had this same problem. With alsamixer you need to use the tab button to see all options in alsamixer. You can tab to "capture" and see if line in is muted or not.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    I had the same problem described in this post. And fixed the problem by configuring the tv tuner card by choosing the option "audio out not connected to sound card".

    I have the audio out from the tv tuner card connected directly to line-in of my sound card. I have no idea why this setting works, but it works !!
