Correct.  However, I'd recomend staying away from alsa's snd_bt87x.  My
experience was that it couldn't run more than 3 days without dying.  I
switched to the OSS btaudio driver and my problems vanished.  The latest
alsa version I had tried was 1.0.5.

The problem may be related to myth's buffering bug.  Even with an athlon
xp 3000 and 768M of memory, myth-cvs still can't handle two bt87x
captures and commercial flagging without spewing "Ran out of free audio
buffers :-(" errors.
