[mythtv-users] Sound problems

I was able to get MythTV to work with my sound card by reinstalling several
times. Then I got a Plextor external TV tuner, installed the drivers, and
now MythTV cannot capture audio from /dev/dsp. /dev/dsp1 (the Plextor card)
I might also mention if I run
aplay: playback:2021: read error
And if I run
While it is in use, I get
/dev/dsp1: Device or resource busy
I'm confident the device is not in use, because I get different messages
from devices in use, and I don't think it's a permission issue, because the
two devices have the same permissions, and /dev/dsp1 is usable.
