Okay, this is weird.  I tried grabbing the log for you with the liba52
version, since that is what I had installed.  If I run mythfrontend

mythfrontend -v audio,timestamp,libav -l logfile

I *do* get audio with a ATSC show.  However, I still do *not* get
audio if I run it like this:

mythfrontend -v playback -l logfile

Why would adding the logging flags change the behavior?  I tried it
each way several times, and it was consistant.

Also, as soon as I hit "TOGGLESTRETCH" mythfrontend segfaults, if
"audio,timestamp,libav" is turned on.  It does not segfault with
"playback" is the only verbose option.

Do you still want the log file?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
