Sorry for a late reply - I was out for a few days, without access to
my MythTV. Yes, -ao alsa worked, and mplayer seem to run fine now.

My mythfrontend appears to be setup to use ALSA:default. Maybe it's
better to change that to pulse, and have mplayer running pulse as well?
What's the proper setting for mythfrontend to use pulse?
