P.S.  Another possibility is to test whether that sound output from
the TV card is fine (which if that worked would prove by elimination
that there was now something wrong with line in).  Would someone be
willing to loan me the appropriate sound hardware to make such a test?
Normally such sound hardware would be used to connect to line out of a
sound card, but in this case it would connect to the analog audio
output of my TV card to test that.  As far as I can tell both ends of
my external sound cable are identical (i.e., are single male sound
plugs of the same size) and thus would be compatible with either line
in or line out jacks for a sound card and also compatible with any
sound equipment that connects to those.
