I don't know if this is related, but since going from 0.21 fixes to 0.22 
fixes (fc10.x86_64 from ATrpms) I have had trouble playing my 
Mytharchive dvds.  I have a large collection burned over the past few 
months using two-channel mp2 audio in both the menu and the recordings, 
and the Mythcenter animated theme.  I get no sound if I select the 
recording soon after the menu appears, but if I wait several seconds the 
selected recording plays properly.  If I re-enter the menu from 
playback, sound disappears, both in the menu and in any subsequent 
selection, but it's sometimes ok if the selected recording plays to the 
end and returns to the menu.  I can of course provide logs if that would 
be useful, but I've found it difficult to identify what might be relevant.

I'm not seeing the too-fast playback.  The discs play as intended in vlc 
- although with some stuttering at the beginning of the recordings - and 
on the hardware players I have tried.
