I am also having problems with getting audio to work with MythTV .24 in Arch 
Linux.  When I press the button to Scan for audio devices nothing gets 
updated, can't even tell if it is doing anything.  When I try to manually 
specify my audio devcie wether it be ALSA:default (worked in .23-fixes), 
ALSA:spdif, etc I don't get any audio output.  I don't see the crash when 
scanning for devices though.
Documentation is the castor oil of programming.
Managers know it must be good because the programmers hate it so much.
