I get the message listed in the Subject when I try to "Watch Live TV". I'm pretty sure that my problem is mostly one of setup. I don't know what to setup in Mythbackend through Mythsetup for my sound device. Is this supposed to be a path to something like /dev/snd/??? or what? Are there any detailed instructions on the various setup pages. I see configuration settings both when I do a mythtvsetup and in the frontend in Main/Utilities-Setup/Setup/General page. What goes where? I'm using FC3 which I believe has ALSA drivers by default. I just figured out tonight how to actually get sound out of my sound card, so that was a step forward. Listed below are hopefully all of the appropriate log files.

Mmmm... Not sure what's causing this... Maybe have a look where it suggests?

Well, if you read the error message, it thinks something's using your
sound card ;)
Only one thing can access the 'raw' sound device at once.
will give you the PID of the process that has the sound device already
open. You can look this up in
, to find out what the process is, then track it down in your init
scripts and kill it.
