run alsamixer from command line, (choose correct sound card...alsamixer -c 1   if it's the second card.. just alsamixer if it's the only card)

arrow over to line and press the space bar so "captur" appears above it. Arrow up to increase its volume then mute it out by pressing "m". Then mute out all line-in's. I know it sounds strange but thats how mine is working...
Make sur to have master and pcm volume up.

Subject: [mythtv-users] No sound in recording

Hi, folks. I've been trying to get mythtv working for about a month<br>now, with very limited success. I'm running Debian, and using the<br>binary packages. I have a Soyo motherboard based on the Via<br>chipsets, both video and sound. The video sucks. I'll get another<br>card, no problem. My problem is sound. I can take an mpg from my<br>replayTV, and play it through Mythfrontend, and it looks reasonable,<br>and sounds great. If I record a program from my TV wonder VE, I get<br>video, but no sound. The capture card has to have the jumper from<br>the audio out to the line in on the sound card. I can hear the sound<br>fine while recording, plus, the sound plays even though nothing is<br>playing/recording, but that's a muting problem from what I can read.<br>I've tried the OSS and ALSA drivers, no difference. I'd rather<br>stick with ALSA, as I'm running a 2.6 kernel. I even went out and<br>bought a SB Live card, thinking the crappy onboard card was the cause.<br>Nope. Same problem. I see that lots of people are running this <br>capture/tuner card. What's the magic incantation? I've read until<br>I'm cross-eyed...<br><br>Tim<br><br>-- <br>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<br>>> Tim Sailer                       ><  Coastal Internet, Inc.          <<<br>>> Network and Systems Operations   ><  PO Box 726                      <<<br>>> http://www.buoy.com              ><  Moriches, NY 11955              <<<br>>> tps at buoy.com                     ><  (631) 399-2910  (888) 924-3728  <<<br>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<br>_______________________________________________<br>mythtv-users mailing list<br>mythtv-users at mythtv.org<br>http://mythtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/mythtv-users<br>
