You must select ALSA:pulse as the audio device.
If you set ALSA:default, as myth can't know which device it's pointing
to, Pulse is suspended.

If you use ALSA:pulse then it won't get suspended and you will get audio

Alternativel, you can use PulseAudio:default if it's deteced

I would appreciate if you could try using OSS again and provide a
backtrace of the crash so we can identify the problem and fix it.
