    Hauppauge WinTV no sound


    I have a Hauppauge Win TV PCI card with a debian etch. I can't get the TV sound with xdtv, though the video is perfect. It seems the card is not well recognised or there is a tuner problem or ... I don't know.

    uname -a
    Linux cactus 2.6.17-2-686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 13 16:34:10 UTC 2006 i686 GNU/Linux

    and finally dmesg | grep bt

    Many "no found ...", isn't it ?

    Any idea ?

    To start off with, those not found messages are okay, it's just the driver trying to find the card's exact chipset.
    I have two TV boards that I've switched between, one being a Hauppage 150 board. To get sound, I have to run a cable from the sound output on the card to a line in on my soundblaster... Even in windows I've never gotten any sound directly from the hauppage card (or my other card for that matter)

    Yes, I have this cable as well ... and to be sure I tried to directly plug my speakers to the sound output of the TV card, I only get "noise" but not the TV sound.

    It really seems the card is not driven as it should be ... This card used to work on Windows.
