This is configurable in the latest version of the patch - if you're
confident that ALSA isn't going to resample (twice) and have
appropriate hardware you can add a setting 'DisableResampler' with
value 1 to the db.
For the vast majority it's far better that we resample - SRC anywhere
else in the chain (ALSA, card) would be done with a SNR much less than
a *worst case* 97dB..
To set the setting:
echo "insert into settings values ('DisableResampler', 0, '<hostname
of frontend>')" | mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg
