vlc audio input

I finally got video to come through on vlc with specifying another parameter in my video capture video device input: /dev/video0:input=1
Tvtime had worked right off the bat once i changed the input from s-video to composite, but still wasnt able to get the audio.
A couple things that i found online helped with various problems i encountered.
One, I didn’t have speakers for a while, so I was working deaf with no understanding on whether the sound was actually getting to the software on the computer available for recording.  It might have just stopped at the hardware level because i didnt have the correct drivers or something.
anyways, so this command: xterm -sb -rightbar -fg yellow -bg black -e arecord -f cd -d 0 -vv /dev/null
that gave me a visual representation of the volume of one of the audio inputs on my computer.
Now i have to figure out which one that was.
I will use this:
To help me understand how to gather audio for this device.
And maybe this too:,
This page will help with managing the audio input instructions.

i used clonezilla to make a backup and restore a 250 GB image of my computer.
one little hangup that i found solved in this post that i really need to remember.
when mounting the restore drive, do the parent directory.  if you do the actual directory of the restore it wont even show the option to restore it.
very helpful
