Well, I suppose I took the easy (but more expensive) way out--I bought a 
different sound card.  Initial tests show that the on-board sound 
(Biostar M7NCD nforce2) was definitely the problem.  I switched to a 
Sound Blaster Live, and now I have no hiss.  I was also getting an 
occasional stutter in audio when watching live tv, and now that's also 
gone as well.
