[mythtv-users] SBLive + ALSA + AC3 question

Now that I think about it, my problems usually only present themselves AFTER
I have used Xine to playback a video (either DD or PCM soundtrack). I wonder
if Xine is doing something to cause the problems?

Sounds like you have more complex problems than I did.  I can use either
xine or mplayer for movies.  I don't have any problems at all.  My asound
file is the same as the one posted in this thread by Neil Milne.

Good luck.
