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.
