OK, answering my own post again, I found the problem.  Was reading
through the forums and saw someone had a similar problem and the
solution was to switch from PS to TS mode for the recording and now I
have sound... YAY !

I also used dvbtune and scan to get all the magic numbers I needed to
build the channels and dvt_multiplex tables for the channels that
refused to auto tune (the tuner just hung at 50% and I had to cancel them).

Now I have a setup with all 7 available FTA DVB channels.

My next question I will leave for another post since it's not really
related to this thread.
