If using ALSA, I'd suggest making sure the KDE Sound system is not
running. Then make sure that your line-in is muted and set as the
capture source. If it wasn't muted, you'd get the audio from line-in
(live feed) and then the buffered audio in Myth (2-3 seconds behind)
playing at the same time.


Run alsamixer and make sure that levels are set correctly and then try
Myth again. If it works, store the ALSA settings in case you need to
get them back again in the future.
