I finally had time to try your suggestion ...

Among other commands, I used the following after first "turning on"
the radio:

% ecasound -i:alsa -o radio.wav

This produced a file containing constant values (== silence when
played with 'xmms'). My hunch is I've not specified the correct ALSA
"device".

I checked some of the ALSA docs, the output of 'dmesg', and looked
around within 'alsamixergui', but don't really know what to do.

Note that the output of the radio/tv card is connected with a wire to
the (line?) input of the SBL! audio card.

Thanks for the help!
