Sample sox command
sox -c 2 -s -w -r 32000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp2 -t ossdsp -w -r 32000 /dev/dsp &
sox -t ossdsp -w -c2 -r 32000 /dev/sound/dsp1 -t ossdsp /dev/sound/dsp
Manipulating the sound source:
aumix -d /dev/mixer1 line1 R
See also AVerMedia TVCapture 98 which is another card based on the same chip. (note: <-- that statement is not necessarily true. only the later Pinnacle devices are similar, the earlier ones and Miro used a Bt848, which lacks the necessary audio capabilities being discussed).
Troubles with card=39
I have a Pinnacle PCTV card, and I just switched from Windows to Ubuntu 7.04. I found the PCTV card did not work under linux, the dmesg shows:

I tried rmmod bttv but it was refused by system which said bttv is used by bt878. How can I make this card working?
The wiki is not designed as a place to ask for help -- please use the v4l mailing list for that. See the front page for instructions. Once you have the card working (and since it's a bttv card, it shouldn't be hard -- they're really well supported), write up the details on the wiki, under bttv cards.
