[mythtv-users] plextor convertx audio trouble

I have a Plextor, too.  I'm using KnoppMyth 0.18.2.  I initially had
problems selecting /dev/dsp2, too.  All I did was delete and retype
"/dev/dsp2" and then alt-F to exit the screen.  I had to go back to
check it, but it eventually stuck after several tries.

okay, little bit clearer head this morning.  Gentoo has a new ebuild for
a pre-release of 0.19.  I'll try that tonight.
