It is entirely possible that is your only option.  Many older 
framegrabbers did not come with audio capture of their own, because 
there was no expectation anyone would ever want to capture it.  You were 
expected to just plug it straight into your speakers (possibly through 
your sound card) and use a simple bit of code to duplicate the 
framebuffer into the graphics output.  In fact, some of the original ATI 
all-in-one cards went so far as to not even allow video capture, instead 
overlaying the video internally just prior to output to the display.
