or alsamixer, shouldn't it work for MythTV too?

Set your Audio device to ALSA:plughw:1,0 too ... Set Passthrough as
"default" (not ALSA:default)

you're not using any of the alsa magic configuration bit, so there's
no need to set it up, and for some reason ALSA:default is not a valid
audio device on your machine

If you get a segfault, please create a ticket with a backtrace with a
description of what audio settings you've put...
