[mythtv] Audio Static...

Try reducing the volumes a bit on the recording and playback sides to about
50% and see if it goes away.  There might be some clipping that's occuring
and might sound like static.

It might not be the answer, but certainly worth a try.  Some audio chipsets
don't play nice when they're turned up real loud.  YMMV.

Hope that helps,
