This is a very different error to what you first mentioned.

Pre-buffering error are reported by the player ; writeaudio buffer
underrun are reported by the audio layer...

For the later, I can only suggest that either you wait for 0.24, or
you try the current mythtv-hdaudio branch and see if you notice any
This is likely to fix buffer underrun error, note that it will not fix
any "pre-buffering" issues which are not related to the audio code,
but how quickly or how well the data to be decoded reach the media
