    Connect the speakers to line out on the sound card. Not the audio out on the tuner.

    Then it should play sound when u use the tuner and still play sound normally in Windows.

    Just make sure u tick line in under the sound / volume control properties.

    If the tuner's audio out is connected to line in on the sound card.

    Some TV Tuner cards come with a short cable to go from the line-out on the TV card to the line-in on the sound card.
    It sounds like yours should have this.
    Then you can leave the speakers connected to your sound card line-out and use the Line-In volume control to adjust volume of the TV card.

    It might be just a matter of unticking the mute box for "line-in" on the mixer page.
