I have Pavucontrol 0.9.8+git20090701 (from ubuntu repositories), but
there I don't find the loopback stream menu. Probably is not new enough.

I understand what you mean, no in Ubuntu Pulseaudio is not a system
service, is a user service, that is the answer I received trying
pulseaudio restart in that way, but just now I understand what does it
Anyway, I understand well that there is no solution to my problem?
In other words: SAA7134-alsa module is too much crappy so is I want to
watch and listen tv I have to find out a tv card with another chip?
If yes, which one?
Thx so much for your patience.
