After much tweaking [and replacing of mb,ram, and finally CPU] I think i
have my back end working. It is only a p3 800 now, but has 512 mb of ram.
Anyway now i want to get my front end working, which is an IBM Thinkpad
390X. I installed KnoppMyth, and everything but the audio works fine. If
I play a DVD or an MP3, it sounds fine and doesnt crash. When i switch to
watching either liveTV or a recorded program it goes for about a second
with OK video, but no audio, then crashes. In the front end logs i get a
whole lot of:
Audio buffer overflow, audio data lost!
and a few:
Writing to audio device: Input/Output error
Also in the logs it indicates that I'm using /dev/dsp , which is what I
use for mythmusic and mythdvd.
The audio chip is an ESS ES1938 i believe, but I know it works as music
and dvds dont have any problems.
