I upgraded my Mythtv Frontend to FC12. I needed to install Mythtv 0.22 to
match my backend since its still at FC10 and atrpms has dropped support
for FC10 ( I can't find Mythtv 0.23 at FC10 level ).
When I finished the upgrade, I had sound in other applications, but not
Mythtv. I found many people reporting the same problem. I must have
implemented about ten different suggestions. No luck.
Finally, after trying a suggestion that mentioned typing in ALSA:FRONT for
source and Mixer, it still didn't give me sound from Mythtv. So, I created
a new user on the frontend, Copied the directory /home/mythtv/.mythtv
to the new user ( and nothing else ), I could bring up Mythtv with sound
working. I do not know if I still need the ALSA:FRONT, or not. Afraid to
There must be some configuration file in my old home directory that was
causing the problem. Either the presence of the file caused a problem and
the new account does not have it. Or, some setting, that one the file
was reinitialized, fixed the problem.
I do know I have a .asoundrc in the old directory, and not in the new. Have no
idea if this is why its now working.
Hope this helps someone else.
