Stupid question, I know, but are you sure you're using the amplified
output on your sound card?  Most sound cards and onboard sound devices
have an speaker output as well as a line-level output.  It's possible
you're using the line-level output instead of the speaker output.

Do sounds other than Myth recordings play at a higher volume (i.e. CD
audio)?  Perhaps it's (as you say) specific to the levels being
recorded by your tuner.
