Hmm, I didn't think the ivtv drivers were "in" MythTV.  They're
usually delivered separately as a Linux kernel module.

Anyway, you should be able to get the 848 to work.  Just attack the
problem scientifically and try to narrow down the source.  Is the 848
card actually producing audio?  Dig up a pair of computer speakers and
plug the audio line out from the 848 directly into the speakers.  Do
you hear anything when recording?
