I went to one of the mirrors and downloaded the rpms.  First, do a 
'modprobe -r' to unload the modules from memory.  (Since I'm using 
PVR-250 cards, I felt safe leaving mythbackend running.)  Then I removed 
the 1.0.6a rpms via:

rpm -e --nodeps <alsa rpm names here...>

After that, I installed the 1.0.5a rpms via:

rpm -Uvh ./alsa* ./kernel-module-alsa*

Go into alsamixer to check the volume settings and SPDIF settings, then 
tested with mythfrontend!
