I am still a little confused.  This system used to be used as a OTA HDTV 
recorder, and everything worked fine.  I have recently had to hook it up 
to a directv receiver, as I have moved and have no OTA reception.  In 
fact, I can still play old recordings, and sound does work.  I use alsa 
for sound playback, but it was suggested to me in a previous post of 
this thread that I should be using OSS drivers for the V4L recording. 
So, I have loaded the oss drivers for this purpose.  I have my V4L video 
source configured to use /dev/dsp for audio.  I am fairly confident that 
the sound is just not being recorded, and it is not a playback issue 
(since I can play back old files just fine).

Do I need to connect my capture card to my sound card for sound recording?
