[MPlayer-users] BT878 Audio Sourcing

I've been building a frontend for MPlayer using Python-Qt and one of the
functions available is to watch TV that is displayed in a Qt Window.
I can watch TV through just about any application such as TVtime, Xawtv,
etc. as well as MPlayer. However with MPlayer I run into the problem of
sound. Too much sound actually. I get the sound twice. Now in order to
make the frontend as generic as possible I want to us MPlayer's internal
volume control that can be controlled with in Slave Mode. So far I can get
sound coming in that is in sync with the video but I cannot control it with
MPlayer's volume control. If I use the -softvol option, I can control it
with MPlayer, but I get a double helping of the TV audio.
My system uses a Hauppauge WinTV PCI tuner. I am currently using Mandriva
2008.0 on a Jetway J9F2-KHDE (Intel HDA drivers).
I would really like to find out how to configure the MPlayer sound in
conjunction with the Alsa mixer settings to get a consistent audio playing in
the TV. The issue is worse when I have to re-setup Mplayer to play regular
video or audio. So not having to reconfigure each time I change media type
would be good.
Thanks in advance,
