Hmmm, so one thing that I've wanted to see was Myth be an auxiliary
device. It is fairly annoying when I run Myth and then have a system
event that generates sound and it blares through the system because Myth
has to control the main volume level. I may have just configured it
wrong, but I wasn't able to find much documentation on ALSA for Myth.
Any hints on what to try or where to look?
