Reading the original post, it's very possible that it's nothing to do
with the soundcard.
The reason for this belief is that he states that there's no sound
coming out of the PVR if wired up directly.
Run this command (with your output wired up to the sound card):
If you get sound then it's the PVR.
First of make sure you haven't muted it, ivtvctl -Y and the setting
for mute should be 0,
if it's 1 try ivtvctl -y mute=0.
Otherwise post the IVTV stuff from /var/log/messages (pref to the ivtv
mailing list) there might be information that helps.
I had a similar problem because msp3400.ko & tuner.ko hadn't been loaded.
What does ivtvctl -Y say under Volume? When I had this problem it was
0, and and trying to set (ivtvctl -y volume=50000) had no effect.
Hope this helps,
