Thanks for the responses but this is a myth bug rather then a sound
server bug...

If I record a mono source and play it back via myth then no sound (all
stereo and AC3 passthroughs work correctly as advertised).

If I playback that source material using VLC it plays back fine no
matter what the sound source is (mono, stereo or AC3).

I'm loath to start messing around with the alsa settings that may well
then break something later.......how do I make a request for this to
be addressed before .22 release?

Thanks in Advance
