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.

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.
