Hi Stefan,
My understanding is that pulseaudio and mythtv don't play nicely with each
other.  Perhaps if you remove pulseaudio, things might work better.  I
cannot remember with exact packages need to be pulled, but googling
pulseaudio and mythtv should reveal some discussions on the topic.
Best of luck,
