You're not doomed yet! :) My Intel HDA has no Master but does have a  
PCM. The message "Cannot find Master" seems to come from changing the  
Mixer from /dev/mixer to "default" as the sound HOWTO on the wiki  
recommends. Using either /dev/mixer or the name of a valid control,  
like PCM, for the Mixer setting should get rid of these messages.

This assumes you are not hooking your sound card to your A/V  
equipment. In that case you're most likely bettter off disabling  
MythTV volume control and using the A/V receiver to control your volume.
