it's not a matter of recompiling mythtv

you've incorrectly configure what audio device mythtv should be using.
> AO: [pulse] Init failed: Internal error
> Failed to initialize audio driver 'pulse'
> [AO_ALSA] Playback open error: No such file or directory
> Failed to initialize audio driver 'alsa'

The "No such file or directory" shows that you have set a device that
just doesn't exist
