I was curious if you are able to capture the screen when you are watching tv using your wintv card? Have you tried using the mainactor program that comes with suse to edit the the capture screen? I am curious about this because if you can maybe I will get a win tv card. I finally see what my problem is with sound. After I watch tv I mute the sound. When I reboot my computer the tv sound comes at the login screen. The arts sound server cannot load. I am getting error messages saying this. I did not see this before. I might have to reinstall suse again to get rid of this problem. I did test the volume in the yast control center and the sound is repeating and it sounds terrible. I can see that something is interfering with it. I have set for auto detect in the KDE control for the sound. I did try OSS and got the same results. I will try Alsa also but I am sure I will get the same results. Also when it does play sounds for kde it plays the same sound ten times in a row! I do have a sound card on my motherboard but it is turn off in the bios.

Both my (kids) AIW/Rage128 and my WinTV cards are 2-3 years old, and I have not seen the AIW-VE you have, so perhaps my review is out of date. I'm a Bcast engineer, tho, and have a good eye for resolution and chroma noise, and of my two cards, the ATI wins handily.
Sounds like you have not set up your sound card properly. The main reason I did not stick with KDE in SuSE8.1 was the inability to have 2 sound cards configured in the KDE Control Center. YAST2 would have no problem, but then KDE would refuse to allow the second card. When I upgaded to 8.2, I was already an ICEWM convert.
Have you done the sound setup in the KDE Control Center? If not, try that, and it may restore the sounds to your KDE games. There is an option in there to use ALSA or OSS or Autodetect. Auto works well on all 3 pc's here, but you might try to force Alsa mode. Another thing, be sure in either yast or Control Center to set up (test) the card volume.
I'm surprised the setup of 8.2 failed to set you up. I've done a dozen both upgrades and virgin installs, and the only headache I had was my instance with two cards onboard.
Ah... do you perhaps have an on-board sound chip plus your soundblaster card? Be sure to defeat the on-board chip in your BIOS settings.

Thanks for the info. I took out my ati tv card and now I put it back in after you said the audio for the tv application does not have any bearing on anything else. If I use it and when I finish I will just mute it. I use kwintv and have not tried the other two. That is too bad that your win-tv card is not better than the ati one. I have heard about icewm window manager. I am pretty new to linux and only tried kde. I am getting no sound for any of the games I try. No sound for anything except for the tv and my cd-roms when I put in a audio cd. You would not why ? I was using kmix. I tried using gamix. There are a lot of selections. It is really long. I have a sound blaster live 5.1 card. I have an AMD 2200 cpu.

First, I do not think it is your hardware. I am confused somewhat. If you mute the audio in the xawtv or motv application, it should not have ANY bearing on the sound levels of your game audio applications, CD playing, etc. They are different paths through the sound card. What mixer are you using... gamix works best for me.
I must admit, I find sound config in KDE extremely confusing, and for that and other reasons, I typically live in the icewm world...<};-) Have you tried using one of the other window managers?
As for image quality, I found the ATI AIW (rage128) to be better than this Haupagge Win-TV. The resolution either line or air signal was better on the ATI tuner. Setup of the ATI until SuSE8.2 was always a nightmare, but the Win-TV is totally supported, way back to the 6.x days. In 8.2, both installed flawlessly for me.
You should post a better detail of your system, and then maybe some of the GURUs will kick in and help you.

Maybe I should get rid of tv card and try the Haupage WinTV. Do you get a pretty good picture? I have tried to mute the TV sound but when I do that it interferes with the sound in general. If I try to play a game the sound is muffled. Also it is getting worse. I tried deleting the tv card and reinstalling the card but my sound is mess up. When I exit KDE I hear the exit sound a hundred times and it plays until the log in screen displays. This is becoming a nightmare!.

Did not have that problem with rage all-in-wonder, but now kids have that, and I have radeon 9700 and use Haupage WinTV. No problem there either, BUT, if I use Kradio and then 'X' the window instead of "quit" the application, the radio will play happily merrily on by itself. (no interface or anything, have to relaunch Kradio and properly "quit" to turn the sound off.
I'm thinking a missed signal between "X" and "KDE", but haven't worried about it.
Suggest until someone gives you the solution, you might "mute" the TV audio BEFORE you exit the program. At least you would not hear it then. Tom
