The script is not necessary to keep audio working. It's only necessary 
after changing a channel or starting a record.

My Problem is, that the sound is scratched and there's a lot background 
I think it's a problem of ivtv. The script I call set some parameters 
with ivtvctl.
I don't know why, but after calling the "dummy"-ivtvctl-set, the sound 
is ok.
