Your sound issue is due to KDE. The easiest fix would be to disable
arts. This can be
changed in Control Panel -> Sound & Multimedia -> Sound System. Uncheck the
Enable the sound system box. You could also do what I do and that's to
change your
audio output device from /dev/dsp to ALSA:default. Also make sure you
change /dev/mixer
to "default" without the quotes. This way works well.
As for your unwatchable video, you need to enable acceleration on your
ATI card. This
will depend on your card being supported by the fglrx driver. I have a
working xorg.conf.ATI
for this driver located in /misc/extras. Be sure to look over it as
it's setup for TV-out using
svideo. I want to point out that acceleration will ONLY work using a
CRT/LCD. There is
a bug with the current ATI drivers that doesn't allow TV-out to work
correctly with accelerated
video. But this has been fixed in the upcoming new release of MythDora
4.0 ;-). You can
visit the MythDora forums. http://g-ding.tv/?q=forum
