I installed the Audigy card. Configured Myth to use it via ALSA:default and
/dev/dsp. Upgraded to 7611 and that fixed the blue screen problem when turning
on the "Extra audio buffering" option.
If I turn on "Extra audio buffering" and "Use video as a timebase" I get a
little video and audio blip every 5-10 seconds. It's like it looses 1-2 frames
and has to adjust during the blip. Kinda annoying.
If I just have "Extra audio buffering" enabled, it will play perfect for about

running out of buffers in this case. If I have the "Extra audio buffering"
turned off, it stutters really bad. Is there a way to increase the size of the
