Pvr 250 How to set Audio Input?

Have the Hauppauge PVR 250 card & I use the audio input plug to record the audio, I use the S-Video connector for my video input. This works fine in Windows.

I have the latest Ivtv release installed & the latest MythTv installed. I set the input to S-Video & do a "cat /dev/video0" test I get video but no audio. Since I'm using the audio input on the card how do I set that with Ivtvctl command? Which input # would the PVR 250 audio input be?

I have an Audigy Platinum soundcard with the front drive bay with the various inputs & outputs. I do not use these inputs to record the audio when I'm using the S-Video input. The Line in, Aux In , Aux 2 in show up in the Kmix window just as they do in Windows mixer.

With all this said is there a way to get Ivtv/Mythtv to record the audio from the Pvr 250 audio input?


Running Mandrake 10.0 with updates.
