The setup wizard doesn't actually look for fonts, it just
lists the one included in the MythTV distribution. You
could try modifying the setting in mysql (after you've
backed up your database ;-).

Well, then it should work perfectly 8-). I'd start by
checking the patch cable. It should go from the tuner card
"out" (not "remote") to "line in" (not headphone, etc.).
Unmute line-in and you should hear the patched through analog
audio from xawtv. If it still doesn't work and this is a new
card for a second system, try swapping it with the card in
the first system to see if the audio on this card is bad.

If both cards work on the first machine but not the second,
then the problem is probably the configuration for the bttv
or alsa drivers.
