[MPlayer-users] Sound a little bit distorted when capturing video

I am using the newest mplayer pre-release and I want to capture video
from my TV card.
Therefore I use this line:
mencoder -tv driver=v4l:width=320:height=240 tv:// -ovc xvid
-xvidencopts bitrate=900:max_bframes=2 -oac mp3lame -lameopts
cbr:br=128 -o bla.avi
This works fine but the sound is a little bit distorted (overdriven).
Sound is made by ALSA intel8x0 (newest version) and I tried alsamixer to
In order to get sound in my captured files I needed to activate the
capture option for "Capture" and "Line". "Line" isn't really needed but
doesn't change anything.
The volume of "Capture" is at 0. If I set it higher or even to 100, the
sound is totally overdriven.
And I found out that if I set "Line" to 100 the sound is also distorted
when I normally watch TV. I therefore set "Line" to around 74.
This means that "Capture" = 0 during recording is the same as "Line" =
100 during playback.
It would be very good if I could set 'Capture' to "less than 0" so that
it doesn't record at the full volume.
I also tried to add 'volume' and 'alsa' to my mencoder-line but this
shows no effect.
So what can I do?
Thanks in advance!
