This tutorial could explain and maybe fix the sound issue on the :
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1110 DVB-T/Hybrid
From lspci output :
Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7131/SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d1)
I am running Ubuntu 9.0.4 jaunty:
Ubuntu 9.0.4 Linux 2.6.28-11-generic
I tried with the build in drivers from the Ubuntu 9.0.4 install disk,
and with the drivers that i compiled from Linux TV org (V4L-DVB).
Both give me the same result : No TV or radio tuner sound output
The sound is working fine on this system only this TV card does not produce any...
I checked the volume parameters tried with different sound servers (alsa, oss, etc..) no results.
I assume that the sound card i am using is OK, details from lspci :
Working on the TV card tested with TV Time and K Radio :
Video (the video output is ok, i can watch TV on the different channels)
Video Channel Seeking (the card detect all my TV channels but no sound)
Radio Channel Seeking (the card detect all my Radio channels but no sound)
Remote Control Lirc (Infrared remote control plugged in the TV card working fine)
The only problem is that i can't get any sound output from this TV card, i checked the modules :
Everything look fine to me but no TV / Radio sound output without using sox.
The Card is not broken because this system has dual boot and when i run windows everything is fine :O)
I believe that the drivers are not able to route the sound from the pci port to the Alsa server.
This TV card does not have any jack sound output, no wire possible between TV card and sound card, sound goes over PCI no choice,which make a latency when using sox with Linux or under Windows i still have the sound not properly synchronized (really minimal but noticeable if you pay attention).
The Wire (Double jack 3.5) connection between TV sound out and the sound card Line In was a better concept as this work fine on my other Pinnacle TV Tuner with no latency but just fine...
Please doe anyone has any idea for get the TV sound from my HVR1110 over pci without using any service like sox ? (not working, big latency)
or maybe working HVR1110 drivers on Ubuntu 9.0.4, or a "wire Patch" who send the TV pci sound output to the sound server will help me...
