   Hi. A very common audio problem we have is when starting any
recording we are likely to get no sound. We find that

1) If we let it run about 15-20 seconds we start getting sound

or more interesting

2) If we hit the back up button (left arrow) we get sound immediately!

This happens on multiple Myth servers and multiple backends, all running Gentoo.
