do you have any sound daemon running ??? i tried it a few minutes
ago with artsd - and i had similar problems with it.
so my question to others : is it possible to use artsd with mythtv?

another possibility for your problem is, that your sound card
does not have full duplex support, or it is not enabled.

in my case i first used the cs46xx kernel module, where i had not
full duplex mode ;[ now i use the alsa-drivers... and it works
[without artsd]
