I posted about a similar issue on the ivtv-users mailing list called 
"The return of 'tinny' audio in 0.4.2?"  My audio is intelligible 
(barely), but sounds like there's a buzz applied.  The distortion starts 
within 5 seconds of tuning to a channel.

Things that are the same between us:
PVR-150 card
Composite input (maybe?  I saw that you're using the directv.pl script, 
so that implies either SVideo or composite.  Either way, it's the 
external audio jacks and we're not using the tuner)

I haven't tried the ivtvctl -q 1 trick yet, but if it works I might have 
to make it a part of my external channel change script (temporarily).
