The following removes all the pulseaudio bits which cause problems plus 
a bunch of un-needed stuff in Fedora. Alsa will then work.

echo "         Now remove pulse audio files mythtv does not need"
  echo ""
  echo "         Do NOT use 'remove pulseaudio*' as this will remove 
  echo "         which will kill gdm and other core programs."
  echo ""
  yum -y remove pulseaudio alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pavucontrol \
                pulseaudio-utils gstreamer-plugins-pulse \
                pulseaudio-core-libs akode-pulseaudio


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
