I am having an interesting problem since I upgraded to FC8/Mythtv .21. I
was previously using FC6/Myth .20 without any issue. The sound from one of
my inputs is very tinny,echoy and distorted when watching live tv or
viewing a recording. When watching live tv I can return to the main menu
and go back to watching live tv- (on the same input)and the sound is
corrected. This doesn't work so well on recorded tv- once the sound is bad
it stays that way. At first I thought the card may be damaged until I was
able to correct the the sound by exiting and returning to live tv.
My hardware is a PVR-500, Asus P5B MB, Nvidia GEforce 7300 graphics,
onboard sound. I connect to 2 directv D-100 receivers using s-video and
I don't see any errors in the logs.

the card, switched directv receivers, updated to the latest kernel and
The problem remains with card1 and can be corrected by the process
described above, but will return some time later- usually on a recorded
Any help would be appreciated.
