    what tuner is it? A lot of tuners require you run a loopback from the tuner to the line-in on the sound card... and that's a pain because you must configure the sound card to record from the line-in.

    yes, that one requires a loopback to the sound card.

    Are you on XP?

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

    Make sure Line In is not muted, and the volume slider is up. Ensure that the loopback cable is properly connected from the tuners audio-out jack to the line-in jack on your sound card (usually blue). Then select Options > Properties, check the "Recording" radio, and select okay. Make sure that "Line In" is "selected" and that the slider is up.

    Yup, usually they have a setup wizard that'll verify you plugged the loopback cable in correct.
