[FFmpeg-user] Hauppauge WinTV-7164 Analog Composite/S-Video Capture

Seems I'm plagued by the same bug as described here:

Hauppauge WinTV-7164 Analog Composite/S-Video Capture
Using this device trying to capture composite/s-video from VCR/VHS media.

dshow device: "Hauppauge WinTV-7164 Analog Capture"

(NTSC Model 2250)

This Hauppauge PCIe device, likely many Hauppuage video capture cards,
capture a video stream already combined with an audio stream.  The bug
and fix posted to stackoverflow is similar.

When specifying the following, either with/without ~Audio (pin 1), I
do get an audio stream detected, but the audio stream is null/silent:

D:\record-ffmpeg>ffplay -f dshow -rtbufsize 500M -video_size 720x480
-framerate 29.97 -audio_pin_name ~Audio -show_video_device_dialog
false -i video="Hauppauge WinTV-7164 Analog Capture":audio="Hauppauge
WinTV-7164 Analog Capture"

D:\record-ffmpeg>ffplay -f dshow -video_size 352x288 -i
video="Hauppauge WinTV-7164 Analog Capture":audio="Hauppauge
WinTV-7164 Analog Capture"

It's possible the fix was, possibly a hack/workaround, specifically
applied only for certain devices such as "AJA Capture Source".  Many
Hauppauge capture cards should be added as well.

Sometimes right after booting into Windows 10, I may get ffplay to
play audio only with a blue screen.  Subsequent ffplay executions drop
audio, with a blue screen, until either Hauppauge's WinTV10 or
VirtualDub64 are subsequently executed, likely properly initializing
the video capture card.  Subsequent ffplay executions show video
properly but again without audio, only stating the video/audio stream
specifications.  Nor is the audio stream recorded to file using
