I played some of the recordings made by MythTV with xine, and the sound
plays - it's there. But when playing them with Mythfrontend, there's no
sound output. Same with live tv. I checked the mixer settings in
mythfrontend, and they are ok (set from 70% to 90%, no change). Are
there any other settings I need to check? On one of my systems, I tried
MythMusic and I get sound output.
Here's my setup:
1. Backend version 0.16 on a Debian stable system (except for those
packages required by MythTv) using the Debian packages. Using a PVR-250.
2. A frontend on a system with a mix of RedHat 9 and FedoraCore
packages. Using MythTv 0.16 here too.
3. A 2nd frontend running Debian unstable, and the Debian 0.16 MythTV
Both front-ends exhibit the same problem. I don't have sound drivers
installed on my backend to test it there. Otherwise as far as I can tell
sound is working on both systems (I can use xmms, MythMusic works, etc.)
Also I don't see any other processes using /dev/dsp as far as I can tell
(lsof /dev/dsp shows nothing, artsd is not running, etc.). I previously
had 0.15 working, but since did a complete reinstall on my backend and
upgrades on the two frontends. Any ideas what's going on?
