I had the same problem when I used my 5500 for NTSC capture.  For whatever
reason, the v4l setup for analog capture defaults to 32000khz mp3 for the
audio.  Go into your recorder profiles and bump the audio rate up to 48000
and the quality up to 10.  Anything less than that causes the "ringing" you
are describing.
