    I have TV Wonder Pro with SB Audigy2 ZS sound card. Windows XP pro.
    When I record TV, there are always echo sound and I can not mute it.

    Called ATI, they have no idea how to fix it...
    Please help.

    Do you have the mute while recording button set in the Creative mixer? Click
    the red + sign above the record slider.

    I don't understand your question.
    Anybody else know how to cure the "echo" problem?

    Of course I can mute everything from Creative Mixer. But that is not a PVR
    should work, right?

    You should have the record, in the Creative mixer, set to Analog Mix. If you
    do you'll see the red + sign above the record slider. You should have it
    set to "Mute While Recording" This would be a normal problem for the pvr
    function. If its doing it while just capturing it may be something else.
    Earlier Audigy2 drivers didn't work well with AIW and I suspect TV Wonders.
    So make sure you have the latest Creative drivers.

    Do you happen to have any environmental effects active?
    Just a thought.

    I see the + sign above slider, upon clicking it, the only option that pop up
    is "Record without Monitoring", and it is checked right now.

    I don't see "Mute While Recording" there, but I do see this option in TV
    wonder's options, it is checked there currently. The sound is not muted
    while recording.

    in Audigy2 mixer, there are several sliders under "Souce", among them "Wave"
    and "Line in"

    While capturing TV, if I mute "Wave" manually, the echo goes away, TV sound
    is still heard through the speakers. If I mute "Line in" too, then the TV
    wonder shut up completely. but I don't think any sound will be recorded.

    So while capturing TV, the sound goes to speakers from two Channels: "Wave"
    and "Line in".

    Question is: What the hell is "Wave"? there is NOT an input on the sound
    card called "Wave"! But there is an input called "Line in".

    None whatsoever.

    Line in is the physical connector from theTV Wonder. Wave is the sound
    being played back from the hard drive. When you watch tv you are listening
    to the line in. If you are using TvOD you should be listening to just the
    wave. The line in needs to be going to the record. If both are on you'll get
    a delay of the wave sound proportionate to how far the capture is behind
    the live.

    "Record without Monitoring" and "Mute While Recording" should be the same
    thing but I don't think you have the latest drivers from the Creative
    Website. New drivers may give you better compatbility.

    You sure it is the driver? T Shadow?
    I only got the Audigy this Xmas, and I downloaded the driver from SB's
    website when I installed it. It should be the lastest one.

    No. Must have been looking at the wrong computer. One of the drawbacks of
    using a KVM.
