I have this problem with TV recordings, but it's because the audio level
of my recording source is very low.  (Not much I can do about it; the
cable box puts out a wimpy audio signal.)

If you're recording from an analog source you may want to play with the
recording volume level and see if that helps.  I've always had to use
aumix to set it; I never had any luck using the sliders in MythTV's
setup screens.
