	No, there is no problem using btaudio for sound-in and ALSA
for sound-out.  You just need to tell MythTV to use a different
/dev/dspX for sound input when you run "setup/setup" (find the device
number in your syslog, at the point where btaudio is loaded).  But
first, have you tested that btaudio is working outside MythTV?  Run
"xawtv" and use aplay or sox to read the btaudio device.  Read the
kernel docs (Documentation/sound/btaudio) for more information.
