Hm, so mplayer/mencoder captures the sound from the tv-card. That would
explain why tvtime and mplayer have different sound qualities.
I have just put my old soundblaster live! in the computer. If I connect
the tv-card with my soundblaster and capture tv using mencoder It does
not capture sound from the tv-card but the soundblaster plays the sound,
so mencoder does not record sound (I tried both immidiate mode options).
I now have to play a little with the configuration of alsa and mplayer,
I think, I can solve this problem now. Thanks for your help.
