PulseAudio.  Works for me  ;-)

In PulseAudio Preferences, configure "Add virtual output device for
simultaneous output on all local sound cards"

Configure myth to use PulseAudio: default for audio output.

In the Pulse volume control, configure MythTV to playback to the
simultaneous audio device.

As your A2DP device comes and goes, it should automatically pick up the
audio stream.
