People keep asking me that.  On a previous TV tuner I did need a line
from tuner audio-out to sound audio line-in so I know what you are
talking about.  But none was provided with the Hauppauge tuner kit; PCIe
is not supposed to require one (as I understand it) and my WindowsXP
setup works fine without one.

The output is attached below.

Of course.  I got so carried away with trying to
modify /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf.dist I forgot the obvious.

Alsamixer shows me PulseAudio, Capture with only one channel (Capture),
and, recording off.  I am going to fiddle.

Yes.

I can't get mplayer or xawtv to work either.  I thought it was probably
all the same problem so I might as well keep hammering away at tvtime
until something works.  (I really haven't put an effort into xawtv yet.)
