I guess this is a reminder for me :-)

I have the jumper cable from the tv card to the sound card installed and 
I have sound in TVtime but with streamer I couldn't record sound.

If I look at my loaded modules I see:
snd_bt87x              16104  0
snd_pcm                92812  4 
snd                    55528  7 
snd_page_alloc         11016  3 snd_bt87x,snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm

That means that my card has the pci sound interface?
But I never got sound through snd_bt87x.

Maybe the chip is able to send sound to the pci bus, but this feature is 
not connected on the board?
