Ok so the Scan does work its just not making any changes to the menu 
automatically.  After hitting the scan button then scrolling through the 
"Audio Output Device" I see a "ALSA:surround71:CARD=SB,DEV=0" option 
selecting that and playing a test video and audio works.  Incase MythTV 
selecting the device that it found during the scan should be the default 
action I am still sending in my logs, otherwise please ignore and thanks for 
the help.
