[mythtv-users] Background noise troubles

I have been using MythTV a little bit for several weeks, but I have been struggling with this one problem since I began using it.  Anytime I watch TV (or any recordings) there is a ringing noise in the background.  At first I thought it was some kind interference, but both kdetv and TVtime sound just fine.  I tried fiddling with the mixer according to the howto instructions to no avail.  I also listened to the /dev/dsp output using aplay according to the howto and it sounded fine too.  This seems significant as it tells me that the sound stream is getting digitized without any problems (or am I way off track?).  Any help would be much appreciated!

Hardware notes-
Tuner card: Leadtek Winfast TV2000 XP RM
Audio: Integrated AC'97 on an MSI Nforce4 motherboard
