Framegrabbing capture cards generally use a soundcard input for audio,
and software encode the audio and video into an mpeg file.
A hardware encoder (like the 950q) needs access to both the audio and
video in order to encode them into the recording.
I'm pretty sure you're going to have to get the audio input on your
capture card working.
This may help?
