I know my way around Linux pretty good but I haven't really messed with any
of the audio stuff, so this is new territory for me. I don't know what
passthrough is. I gather that has something to do with passing audio from
the line-in jack to the output? I am not doing anything special. I am just
playing back SD mpeg from a PVR-150. The sound volume controls work fine
outside of Myth. Also I am using Intel integrated audio on my BE/FE fine. I
assume there is some setting that I need to adjust to let Myth know how to
control the volume on my system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
