This is a well known, long ignored problem.
Run "ivtvctl -q 1" to fix the sound. You will have to do that after every
channel change (add it to the channel_change script).
I run this command every 15 seconds from a script.
Also do not upgrade to ivtv-0.8.0, since ivtvctl does not support the -q
option any more, and I have not found another way to fix the sound yet.
For more info google "tinny audio 150".
