Your onboard audio doeso have 'Line' (analog audio input), but it's not
connected with your tv card.
Mplayer gives me sound from both my DVD/CD drive (which RhythmBox fails
to do) and video1 for tv (which tvtime fails to do).
When using mplayer without pulseaudio, just with ALSA, mplayer does not
recognize the 'Line-in' control on gMixer or alsamixer for either CD or
TV. Volume and mute only work with 'Master', 'PCM' and 'Front'
mplayer. I can mute or completely remove 'Line-in' from gMixer without
any effect on sound output.
The commands I have used to get sound are:
]$ mplayer cdda://1
]$ mplayer /dev/video1
I do not believe CD playing or TV are separate issues but are
intertwined. Until the basic ALSA bug that is affecting my CD/DVD is
fixed, I'll never get to the bottom of the tvtime question.

Why? This is the "sample output volume". Unlike music players,
tvtime doesn't output any samples.
Yes I realize that PCM controls the "sample output volume", yet every
source of sound I try, PCM seems to play one of the controlling roles.
