    i recently added a tv tuner card (pinnacle pctv) for my pc. suddenly sound disappears on my linux box. alsaconf doesn't do anything. alsamixer detects the vtv tuner not the Ac 97 soundcard. any suggestions?

    remove the tuner card and see if it works then?

    I have no experience with TV Tuners under linux, might i suggest the support mailling lists for the distro of choice?
