[mythtv-users] No audio (usually) - Audio buffer overflow, audio data lost!

When running mythfrontend and watching live tv, I get about a half second of sound, followed by 5-20 seconds of silence, another half second of sound, etc. Mythfrontend is print out "Audio buffer overflow, audio data lost!" I can play a previously recorded file after installing mythvideo, and "cat /dev/video0 > foo.mpg" produces a video file that plays correctly with sound. Xawtv doesn't work yet, but I just installed it for the first time and doubtlessly screwed up the configuration somewhere.
This system used to work but I reinstalled it to match another new install (which would be a remote front end). The major changes are that the kernel is now 2.6.14 instead of 2.6.9, and ivtv is 0.4.0 instead of 0.2.0. The card I'm using is a pvr-350. Video is nvidia, and for sound, I'm using ALSA on intel8x0. I've successfully set up ALSA and used oss (/dev/dsp) both.
After scouring google, I see that other people have had this problem and similar problems. However, none of the solutions work. It seems to me like mythtv is getting a sound stream that it doesn't recognize anymore for some reason, like the format is different.
Has anybody seen this problem? Is there a way to get more information on what this error means (I tried -v 5 on mythfront end and found the code where the error is produced, but neither told me anything I could use). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
