I'm guessing you have no sound in other non-kde apps as well, right?!
My favourite solution is to killall artsd. After that, xawtv should work.
One solution that *sometimes* works, if you're running kde 2.2, is to go in
to kde control center->sound->sound server and set it to use ALSA. Also, set
the time out to something low, like two seconds.

artsd will have to learn to live alongside other apps if it's to find a place
on my system. I like the idea behind it, but if it's going to force me into a
kde only world, it's just too MS for me.
