I didn't  see the start of this thread but surely your PA problem only
lasts for the first couple of seconds when you playback a recording?

I never used PA until Fed11 (because frankly it didn't work properly
for me), but now have it setup with MythTV and even have LIRC
controlling the volume within mythtv to a spdif output.

I have no latency issues after the first say 2 seconds of a recording
or video playback.
