I see. How about the "latency interpolation" and "accurate measurement"?
That sounds like MythTV could know how much to delay the video to get
the lip sync OK. Though even if it was constant (or predictable) it
would still slow everything down (like channel switching time that most
people are so sensitive about) by the Pulse Audio latency, right? So
it's unacceptable for MythTV, anyway.

Oh. It's third (or fourth?) sound daemon for Linux in last 10 years,
invented to fix all bugs of the previous solutions, and they still
cannot get it done right? :-)
