1. Please provide the output of 

$ v4l2-ctl --log-status

while capturing TV.

2.  Also could you provide the chip numbers from the two black chips
next to the end of the metal tuner can just above the 27.00 MHz crystal?
I can't read them from the photograph.  One looks like it has a
"Philips" logo, but I can't tell much else.

3. Make sure you have the firmware for the cx25843 chip in the proper
firmware directory for your distirbution.  You will never get broadcast
audio without that firmware loaded into the CX25843.

Regards,
Andy
