Sounds like you're getting the TV audio feed directly through the
soundcard's mixer, rather than from mythfrontend itself.  Try this:

Set your line-in to record, then turn the volume all the way down (or
mute it).  You may have a separate "capture" or "input gain" setting
to control the recording volume (depending on your card and mixer
program); make sure it's set appropriately.  Then make sure your
master and pcm controls are set so you can hear the audio coming from
