Well that doesn't make any sense, does it?  The environment setting
supposedly tells MythTV not to ignore it.  

I just spent a LONG time debugging sound problems.  There is a lot of
confusion out there about whether Pulseaudio does or doesn't work with
MythTV.  I would just be happy you are getting sound.  

You could try taking that "EXPERIMENTALLY..." setting out of your .profile
or .bashrc and setting the output device to ALSA:front and the mixer to
Master.  That's what got things working for me.  I have it on authority from
people on the Pulseaudio list that using those output settings will insure
that Pulseaudio is not being used.
