Create a .asoundrc file with the following and place it into the home
directory of the myth user. Then use ALSA:default or ALSA:spdif in Mythtv
and Mythmusic. Also, make sure you turn off "Multi Track Rate Locking" if
enabled or you will get sound output at the wrong speed. This will
effectively output all sound through your optical out so your
receiver/processor can do all the work.
