It doesn't matter what the _line_in_ volume is set at just make sure it is
selected to record. then set the _rec_ volume, it's a different thing. I
use the interactive curses interface, select _line_in_ to record by
selecting it and hitting spacebar. 

Assuming you have all that you'll need to open the soundcard at a
realistice sample rate. that is set in liveice.cfg 

You can test the sound card end by using a different app (like rec) and
record a wav file and see if that works. If you can do that then you
problem is on the liveice.cfg end. If you are sure you soundcard is set
correct i can take a look at your config file.
