Having just conquered this problem myself on my saa7134-based card, one 
extra step I had to take which wasn't documented in the HOWTO was to run:

v4lctl -c /dev/video0 setattr mute off

After beating my head against this multiple times, I now have this 
command set to fire off in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local :-)
