Err.....No it doesn't
What does happen is that MythTV outputs to Alsa (assuming that's what
you've setup in your settings), you then need to ensure the
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio (or the equivalent for your distro) is
installed (and also the pulseaudio-module-lirc or your distro
eqivalent) if you want to drive volume using your remote.
So the stepping path for output then becomes....
MythTV --> ALSA --> Pulseaudio
If PA wasn't working on my system I couldn't control the volume using
my remote as I had to program it into my .lircrc file to specifically
drive the PA commands.
I know I came late to this conversation but if I can help let me know.
