[mpeg2] no sound with a Hauppauge WinTV PVR

Hello,

I have a use Hauppauge WinTV PVR (the old one - plain without a number,
not a 150, 350 or so ). I got it working, but without sound - it is
silent with any program like tvtime or mythtv.

I read found a lot trouble messages about this with the solution to
fix the line-in settings of the sound mixer. To be sure, that this
is not my problem, I did two things:
* plugged an ipod in line-in of the computer and could hear the
ipod-sound. So my line-in settings should be OK
* I plugged an speaker direkt to line-out of the tv card, but could
not hear anything.

I am not sure if the card-hardware is OK, since it is an old, used
card.

I read a few bits about this card having sound problems, like:
http://pvr.sourceforge.net/ This driver seems long outdated. Is there
a more current version anywhere?

Are any options important for the modules (bttv oder tuner or any other)?

I would like to get this cartd working with sound. Has anybody this card
working with sound?

Here are some log outputs. If anything else would be of help,
please let me know:
