If you're running ALSA, either stop or upgrade to a newer version.

I also note from your mail from last week that you're now using the RTC 
video timing method.  If 'cat /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq' doesn't 
yield 1024, you should arrange to do so (probably through the 'systune' 
package).  Or you could try changing the permissions on /dev/rtc so your 
Myth user *can't* read it, and see if that changes things.
