Bit OT, but sound related

I bought a Pinnacle Studio PCTV Pro, which is a stereo TV/FM tuner
card. It is hooked up to an Audigy2 for sound. If I use either the
internal aux connector or the external lineout connector for sound I
can hear background noise if I have the mixer volume for that source
turned up quite loud, mostly noticeable when listening with
headphones. I can also hear some noise when I move my mouse. Is this
due to RF distortion? How to eliminate it besides turning off that
source in my mixer control when not watching TV? Or should I take it
back and just tell them it is not shielded properly?
