No sound! on: WinTV Hauppauge NTSC 45231 Rev B423


I posted identical information in another thread, but it seems to be somewhat dead. I will understand if a moderator thinks that I should be patient for follow-ups to that post.

I am using Fedora Core 2 with kernel version 2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp.

Video is fine.

My Hauppauge card is described by the following:
NTSC 45231 Rev B423
WinTV Copyright 1998 Hauppauge Computer works, Inc.

I have been using modprobe, insmod and lsmod to experiment with different settings. At the moment, both modules ¨tvaudio¨ and ¨btaudio¨ are loaded.

I just recently saw for the first time output about btaudioś failure to recognizethe very mixer-like entries, as as seen below at the end of the DMESG output.



In my /etc/modprobe.conf, I am at the moment using:
==================================================
alias eth0 tulip
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-emu10k1 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1
#alias char-major-81 bttv
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
install audio /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install audio && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove audio { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove audio
alias char-major-99 ppdev
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
options parport_pc io=0x378 io_hi=0x778 irq=7 dma=none
alias char-major-81 bttv
options i2c verbose=1 scan=1 i2c_debug=0
options bttv card=80 tuner=2 radio=1 audiomux=1 gbuffers=4 firm_altera=/usr/lib/video4linux/hcwamc.rbf
install btaudio /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install /lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/btaudio.ko
install msp3400 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install /lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp/kernel/drivers/media/video/msp3400.ko
=================================================================

I have been using KDE and employed /usr/bin/kontrol to switch between OSS and ALSA.

I am using an SB!Live audio card, although I get no output from the ¨line out"of the Hauppauge device.

Here is some recent dmesg output:

=============================================================
I´ve been for awhile now in that state of affairs where my each of my attempted fixes may impede its successor.

Itś really, really frustrating to be unable to get sound out of this otherwise functional device.

Any help? I assure you that I have checked the mixer and volume levels. I have tried to use the ¨automute=0¨ insmod option to no avail.

I have checked the cable, trying it in both the ¨line in¨ and the ¨microphone¨ ports in my sound card. I have tried my USB Audigy sound card.

I have tried the various settings of the ¨card=X¨ insmod option.

I have followed Gerd Knorr´s instructions regarding the firmware, and only gotten feedback as shown above in the output from DMESG saying ¨altera who?¨.

I´d really like to win this battle and could use some help.


Thanks in advance for anything!!
