Make sure you have the volume loud enough on the correct input in your 
sound mixer... you might want to unmute them all and set the volume all 
to max in order to find the correct input.

When using the tree-merging scripts with dvb-kernel, it works with 
2.6.13, although it is not required.  The tree-merging scripts pull the 
required code from dvb-kernel cvs into the video4linux, 
backwards-compatable build environment.

Always a pleasure... btw, you cut off the cc's to the list in your last 
reply... Please keep the lists cc'd when you're talking about this 
stuff. (no need to apologize) As these lists are archived, this 
conversation can help someone else in the future. :-D
