Do you have the external loop cable installed (from the TV card to the
sound card) or an internal cable going from the TV card to the sound card
(just like the cable going from a CD-ROM drive to a sound card)?

If so, unplug it/them. Make sure you've got the btaudio driver loaded,
and that MythTV is reading the audio off the correct /dev/dsp device.
