Sound works fine with other features of the card (CD player, ect..), but no audio out to speakers. There's not much plugged into the card at the momment (cable tv & monitor). I don't have a DVD player so that component isn't installed. Speakers use the old plug style, not USB and are connected in the mobo's standard and s-bracket audio ports (4-channel output). Drivers and software have all been updated to the most-current available from ATI's site (Audio Catalyst 3.2, Direct-x v9.0a, ect..). I built the pc last summer and recall the sound working fine. Needless to say, the tuner hasn't had much use since. I've updated audio codecs (for DivX&Mpeg4 playback) could that be the problem?

I am having the same problem. I just got the card yesterday and nothing I do makes the sound come out of the TV Tuner. I have connected the Line-In plug to the Line-In Jack in my SB Audigy drive. I even connected my Rio to the Line-in jack to make sure the input was working, which it is. I updated all the drives, etc. Have you found a solution to this yet? ANyone out there have this problem? Thanks.
I have either the same or a similar problem. I am running a shuttle with onboard Nvidia sound. There is no line-in, so I have the CD-Out from the ATI plugged directly into the CD-In on the motherboard.
When I start the TV tuner software from ATI the picture is there, channels change, the guide works, etc. NO sound. I've installed all of the most recent drives. I've tried the Microphone-in as well.
Next I started Sound Recorder and recorded while the tuner was on. It recorded the sound from the tunned channel!
Next, just for fun, I tried recording 15 seconds of the channel using the ATI tuner software. No sound on record. BUT - I played back the recorded file and the sound is there!
All of my volume controls are set properly (levels, not muted, etc).
As it turns out, the ATI software is NOT using the motherboard sound output for standard TV viewing - but rather, it is using the pod! The thing is that I don't want to use the pod because I have my digital out connected to my home theater system.
So - I tried a new test - video on demand!
As most of you know, video on demand is actually recording while you watch - hence the ability to pause live TV. When I turn on video on demand, the sound stops playing through the pod and the motherboard is given control. (In case I didn't mention earlier, my sound is on-board Nvidia).
The result? Well, while watching TV using video on demand, or recording it, I get full sound. If watching the standard tuner, it is silent. For now I'll stick to video on demand because I've got plenty of free space on the machine and it doesn't seem to impact viewing whatsoever.
The fix for no sound while viewing recorded shows is as follows.
My Shuttle doesn't have a LINE-IN so you must use ATI card CD-OUT to CD-IN on system board .
1. Start TV Player
2. Right click on screen
3. Click SETUP
4. Click DISPLAY TAB
5. Click INITIALIZATION WIZARD button
6. At (Tipical Audio Connections) screen Cick CHECK BOX (I have connected the cable.)
7. Use pull down menu to select CD AUDIO
I _only_ have sound during normal TV, bu not while doing TV-ON-DEMAND. I tried to use internal MOBO sound (ATI card directly wired to AUX input on motherboard DFI-Lanparty rev.B with onboard nVidia SoundStorm audio), I tried to use external (by plugging ATI cable into LINE-IN, but no sound during PVR. Video captured during PVR, and exported to playable MPG file did not have sound either.
