[mythtv-users] dsp devices change on reboot

I'm running mythtv on ubuntu edgy eft.  I have two PCHDTV 5500 cards
and one WinTV 401 card in my system.  Each of these cards, as well as
the on-board digital sound card, seem to have their own dsp device
(/dev/dsp, /dev/dsp1, /dev/dsp2, /dev/dsp3, and /dev/dsp4).  The
problem is that every time I reboot, the on-board sound (which I am
using as sound output to my receiver) is on a different dsp device.
One time it will be /dev/dsp and another time it will be /dev/dsp4
etc.  Does anyone know how I can make sure that the on-board sound is
always assigned the same device?
