I had this same problem. You select one of those channels, have no
sound, exit watching TV and re-enter and you get sound.
I fixed it without realising whilst chasing another problem....
You may get sound dropping out half way through a recording. There is a
setting for the capture cards you need to change.
Exit mythfrontend, shutdown your backend.
Edit your capture cards, in "advanced settings" / "Recording Options"
you can select "Record in TS format instead of PS"
TS mode I believe is the true format of the data as it comes off the wire
Discussions from developers suggest this will be the default in future
This fixes the sound dropping out in recordings and most probably was
the culprit of no sound in channel 7
