Wow. That's a pretty nice .asoundrc. ;) Maybe that Mike Dean guy
should update it for ALSA 1.0.9 (which enables dmix by default for
soundcards that don't support hardware mixing)....
(On the bright side--for anyone who's considering upgrading--the one
posted works fine with 1.0.9. It's just a bit more explicit than need
be. So, maybe the explicit version that works on all ALSA 1.x versions

Change Myth to use "ALSA:mixed-analog" for the sound device and
"default" for the mixer. The control device is not the same as a mixer
control. It's used to get access to controls (like the mixer control),
but it is not a mixer in and of itself.
