I have tried capturing on all the inputs, yet I get no sound. looking back through the archives this seems to be a common problem but unfortunately not many people seem to post their solutions. I'm a bit of newbie with linux and perhaps bit off more than I can chew attempting to set up mythtv 0.19 as one of my first projects. If someone could provide me with *detailed* trouble shooting steps I'd be very appreciative. I'm running debian with a 2.6.15 kernel. My sound card is an onboard Nvidia nforce2

what user does mythtv run as? Does */that user/* have the ability to
output sound? (su - to that user then try running some movies and see if
it outputs sound).
