I'm running with two Plextor tuners and didn't have any problems getting

Dale, I only have 1 tuner and it's a new myth install. gorecord reports it
is reading from /dev/dsp1 so I'm sure that's right. Myth just does not seem
to use what I configured in mythsetup. It almost seems like /dev/dsp is
hardcoded somewhere. Is anyone else using this version of myth and getting
/dev/dsp1 to work?
