I don't exactly know about your card, but mine (PlayTV Pro) was a real
pita trying to get any sound of it. Magic came from the bttv_gpio and
audiomux parameters of bttv module. For me it was:

bttv_gpio=1 audiomux=2,0,2,0

Actually I scripted around audiomux probing every combination of
n_1,n_2,n_3,n_4 with n_i in [0,1,2]. As soon as I got actual sound, I
wrote it down, and fall asleep :-P (there wasn't an 'unique'
combination, though).
