Forgive me if I'm stating the obvious, but if you've already got the TV 
sound coming out of dsp2, shouldn't all you need do is specify dsp2 as 
the audio source for that card in mythtv-setup?  In my limited 
experience with btaudio and snd-bt87x, getting to the point of having a 
functional /dev/dsp device was 99% of the work.  IIRC, the only thing 
left to do after that point was to select the right dsp device in myth 
setup and make sure that device wasn't muted.
