I'm running the latest stable version of Ubuntu (9.10) live on a USB key, and I essentially want to test my Sabrent TV/FM Radio tuner card SBT-TVFM. This card works fine in Windows just by using the automatic updates. I read articles suggesting how to remove the saa7134 module and reload it with the correct card and tuner options to get it working in Ubuntu. And I get video, which is great!

I've had a lot of sound problems with this machine, an Inspiron 1420, and this is the most recent.
With this most recent upgrade to 9.10, my sound only works after a fresh boot. If I put it into suspend, the sound just stops working. It may be possible that somewhere is getting muted, but not any of the obvious places.
