    My crystal ball is broken again, so I can't look up things like what ort of devices you have and what exactly are you trying to do , but I'll just make wild guesses..

    Video cables do not carry audio. You have to connect a separate cable from your TV's audio output to your soundcard or the capture card (if it has audio inputs).

    if the audio out isnt integrated with the card (through the pci i mean) then you'll need to find the audio out jack or 4 pins that goes to your motherboard

    well yes... sound needs to come from somewhere.... and when you record from your tv card, it goes out of that hole/pin and into the line in (usualy) on your soundcard, or directly to the motherboard...

    so heres some setup scenario..
                                    video (goes through the pc)
    antenna cable>tv card{
                                    audio-out>line in (sound card)
                                            video (pc)
    Playstation (video out) > tv card{
     \PS Audio>line in (pc/souncard)      TV Audio not used
    then PC>monitor/tv/etc, PC>speakers etc..

    most common way of setting up a Playstation or any picture device to your pc.. and record everything.. also note that No.1 can also be applied if you are using the RF (antenna) connector for your PS/video playback device to the card, but the audio line needs to be there as well or you get no sound..
