I had similar problem.
You have to check, if there is a problem with Mplayer or with sound card 
If you play TV, default the voice will be played from sound card, via 
connection TV-card-sound card.You have then "no sound" message if you 
use console window.
If you record by mencoder, the voice will be recorded from TV card 
directly. You can set it up via option "immediatemode".
Try to record and then to play recorded files (with -oac copy first).
After I changed the sound card, it was all OK.
