I don't know what you are referring to with audio and mythbackend.
audio is used for playback, and is in mythfrontend only.

I don't even know how you can configure audio output in mythbackend..

backtrace is used when you have a crash.. if you don't have an actual
crash, you won't get a backtrace.

If OSS works for you for playing recordings , so you should in LiveTV,
cause there's effectively no difference between playing a recording or
livetv ; one and the same when it comes to the video/audio player
