I had a similar problem when trying to record audio using my onboard sound.  The simpliest solution is to buy a regular soundcard.  Even a cheap basic one should do fine.

Alternatively, if you are currently using OSS, you might want to try the ALSA drivers, and vise versa...  You might have better results that way.

That's because xawtv doesn't capture audio at all, it just turns on your TV-tuner, and allows your soundcard to pass the sound through to your speakers.  It's very different when capturing audio.
