Again, thanks for the prompt reply.
I've checked passthroughs and cycled through all the passthrough output devices. Wound up putting it back on Alsa:default. Do I need to close mythtv or should these setting take effect immediately? Nothing I'm doing is making any difference.
I looked at the keyboard shortcuts and can't find anything applicable. Volume is set at 100% on master and pcm in mythtv settings, (system volume is controlled by master), mute is off, I can't find anything else simple that looks as if it applies.
When it stopped playing, I did not have the remote in my hand - it was sitting on the arm of the chair next to me. I am having a hard time believing I did anything to kill it, but I'm at a loss to get it working again.
And as I said, everything else works just fine.
