Never needed to use audio in linux. Sorry. I run mostly server
applications. A few client apps but mostly server side stuff.
I'm getting OTA signals at 95%. The DVB driver loads up and works
great with mythbackend.
I keep hearing about a check box for XvMC in the setup but I don't see
it. Also I don't see any Audio in setup either.
I'm going to walk away for a week or so and come back and start over.
