Ok.  I was just looking at KDE->Control Center->Sound & Multimedia.
Then looked at "Sound System" and the Hardware tab.  Initially,
the "Full duplex" checkbox was not checked.  I checked it and
then tried to restart the sound system but that failed for some
reason so I rebooted.  Tried it again in mythtv, still no luck.
