Hi Bill.

I probably can't help much as my card is an Hauppauge WinTV Express. Analogue 
TV (antenna), and the card has an audio out for connecting to the line in on 
the soundcard. Anyway can you send the output from the following before you 
modprobe the tuner module.

lspci -vn
lsmod        (the whole lsmod please)

To autoload the tuner module at bootup, and as Fedora does not have 
an /etc/modules file (as debian has), try putting the line below 
in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

modprobe tuner

Not sure on the sound problem as I don't know how the sound is routed to the 
soundcard from your TV card. Open alsamixer as below, and press F4 which will 
show the capture controls. If your soundcard is an hda-intel one, there will 
be few controls showing, but maybe it's worth a fiddle with what's there.

Also F10 has got pulseaudio installed, and perhaps pulseaudio has something to 
do with the lack of sound from the TV card. Do the sounds work ok apart from 
the TV card?

I never got tvtime to work well, and use xawtv myself.

All the best.
