[mythtv] VIA EPIA 800 - Sound Question

I have used the on board audio in RedHat 7.3 and it works fine, there
is no hissing and popping. And you are wrong about being limited to
one PCI card. VIA Tech makes a 1 to 2 PCI riser card specifically for
this mother board. It is a special riser card so normal riser cards will
not work unless they are 1 to 1 riser cards.
