New Revision: 20310
   Changeset: http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/20310




Refs #5473. Adds a check for PulseAudio at startup of mythfrontend and mythtv. PulseAudio causes delays that range randomly between 500-2000 ms when playing back audio, so we abort startup if the pulse audio server is currently running.
Note: I've referenced a ticket that adds PulseAudio support to MythTV, but even using the PulseAudio API's the delay is still 300 ms; if we can get that down in the 20 to 50 ms range we can adjust when we display the video frames to compensate for the delay (which we should be doing anyway when using multiframe deinterlacers).
