I also ran into the same problem with my  SB Audigy card.  I feel that
the new kernel is somehow broken since Mandriva also doesn't accept line
in signals with SB audigy card.  Will work fine with other SB older
cards though.  I really miss having audio with my TV card, but I like
Surround sound with my DVD's.
