Not sure if you've checked this already, but it's from the MythTV docs:

Using ALSA.

To use ALSA, you'll need to correctly setup your asoundrc file.
Configuring this file is beyond the scope of this HOWTO. Once ALSA is
working correctly, change the output sound device in
mythfrontend->setup->Audio from /dev/dsp to ALSA:default. This field
may be edited to suit your ALSA requirements.
