I've only just joined this mailing list so please forgive me if I'm
repeating something said recently.
When I just a few weeks ago moved from a three year old MythTV install
to 0.22 on Ubuntu Karmic, on the same hardware, I spent about three
weeks trying to get it to work the way it used to. Most of the problems
turned out to be due to changes in Ubuntu and the kernel.
One thing I noticed was that MythTV (most probably MythWelcome but maybe
MythFrontend) seemed to mute all ALSA channels on startup except for the
Master and possibly PCM. But for some reason my hardware needed a
channel called "Front" to be unmuted. The simple solution was to sleep
for about 30s after starting MythWelcome and then unmute the necessary
It seems to me there has been some changes to ALSA since my first
install, and I still haven't got it sorted out.
Just a thought.
Sauve qui peut, la grande panique. Rien n'est simple, tout se complique.
