 While a PulseAudio output method has been written, it suffers from poor
 audio sync, and has such been disabled except for testing and development.
 Since PulseAudio does not actually support hardware on its own, instead
 relying on ALSA, MythTV's only recourse is to disable PulseAudio while
 running, and access ALSA directly.  This results in the deficiencies in
 the rest of the system that you have outlined above, however most users
 running MythTV on a dedicated machine will not experience these.

 Once the sync issues have been resolved, this behavior and associated
 problems will be removed, and MythTV will be allowed to use PulseAudio.
 The ticket to follow for that is #7496.
