The only time I've seen no audio stream is when the firmware has partially
failed (crashed), but it's not very common. The only real fix for that is to
reload the firmware, so you'll have to rmmod & then modprobe ivtv. If it still
doesn't work then the problem is elsewhere.
What's the output of 'v4l2-ctl --log-status' ?
Also, try loading the ivtv module with 'modprobe ivtv debug=1'. Make a short
capture from '/dev/video0' & if the audio stream is still missing check the
output from dmesg. You may see a line like 'ivtv0 warn: Could not get result
