That's a little unclear.
Do you mean:
I hear sound on live tv (when using the BT848) and I hear sound
playing back recordings made from an HD-PVR..
I hear sound on live tv/recordings made from an HD-PVR but never any
sound from the BT848...
If you can't hear any sound at all from the BT848, I'd start by going
into alsamixer on the command line and making sure that your capture
gain is not at/near 0 and that the input source is set to Line and not
Mic or something like that.
It's been a long time since I've tried to use one of those types of
cards. I can't say it's something I'd want to ever do again. If you
want to add another analog SD capture device, I'd recommend looking
for something like a PVR-150/250/500 on ebay.
