Don't know if this is related but every time I do a dist-upgrade, my
sound stops working in mplayer only. MythTV, Music is fine my mythvideo
has no sound. I "solved" it last time by uninstalling the alsa drivers
and re-installing them. This didn't work today so I'm back to

Hope this helps someone answer...
