hello everyone. after much reading (mike, thanks again for the links)
and playing with the .asoundrc file
i have the following situation. aplay, alsaplayer, xine and mplayer all
work. mythtv no longer complains
about the audio, but i still do not get any sound. i have the remote
frontend using ALSA:mixed-analog
as the output device and mixed-analog for the mixer. i am left
wondering if the video stream from the
backend contains audio? is there some way to check this? if i run
mythfrontend on the backend server
the audio works fine (although volume seems a little low).
