[mythtv-users] Lost sound again

I have a similar problem.  Every time I use Gxine under Edgy Server my
Prologic sound goes away or Digital and Prologic works but switching between
the two produces a POP when entering Dolby Digital mode.  The Alsa:spdif
mode always works but there are MP3 non 48KHz problems there.  I end up have
to play a game of muting playing unmuting and disabling & enabling
/etc/asound.conf.  Some combination of these activities unclogs the digital
alsa ports.

I'm using the onboard audio on my GIGABYTE GA-965P-S3. Which is and INTEL
sound chip.

When I used Ubuntu Dapper and MythTV 0.18 this happened all the time. 
Sound would work fine for a while and then when rebooting it just 
wouldn't work in MythTV, but worked fine in everything else.

Going into MythTV setup and toggling between PCM and Master and making 
sure the sound level wasn't set to 0%, followed by a couple of reboots 
usually fixed it. However, I never got to the root cause of the problem, 
which annoyed me intensely!

After a fresh install of Edgy and Myth 0.20 the problem has never 
recurred (I hope I didn't speak too soon:).
