My card is not connected directly to the sound card i think that the sound myst just go through the motherboard to my sound card if that helps.

You need to connect the audio out of the TV card to the line-in of the sound card. You should have got a connector for that.
You should also check the dmesg output (grep for bttv) and see what it says about multimedia device.
You can also do without the line-in connector but you need to change the audio settings for that. Check the manual of your TV card for details.

I had the same issue, and not sure if its this simple for you but the volume in linux needs to be set higher than it does in windows.

As bhaskie already said, you need to connect the tv-card with the line in of your sound card
