[mythtv-users] Using mythbackend with a virtual tuner but without a soundcard

I'm trying to setup a new sandbox machine. This machine will be as similar as 
possible to the production server, so I've setup a virtual tuner 

Now the only problem is that mythbackend refuse to record any program because 
it can't find any audio device (in this machine there's no soundcard). I've 
tried with "/dev/null" as a device, but it doesn't work:

Here is the log:

NVR: Error, unknown audio codec

2007-01-05 03:19:26.854 NVR: /dev/null: error setting audio input device to

Is there a way to ignore the audio?
