Try one of the following:
gv4l - Gui based requires transcode.
ffmpeg
avicap
streamer
I have been able to recorde video but not the quality I want. This the onlay reason I have A Windows around for. If I get this recording quality up I WILL get rid of windows forever.

I've never been able to get xawtv to record either. I never use it anymore either, if you just want to watch tvtime is better.

If you want a great pvr app I'd recommend mythtv. Mythtv may not be the easiest program in the world for newbies to install and configure however.

You can also use mplayer to play and record tv.

What kind of card do you have?

Gv4l is super nice, but if you have a really cheap card
you may want to use avicap (from avifile) to keep av sync.

I have been able to record video audio with xawtv in 9.2,also gv4l worked for both sound and video in 9.2 but unstable and did not last longer.
In 10.0 gv4l record good video but no sound.
I am using kmix and line is on.
