If running 0.24 ; it's just a matter of scanning for audio device
within myth, then selecting the appropriate device.

The list of available audio devices can be found by running aplay -l
(show the cards) and aplay -L (show the devices)

Make sure it's not muted, ALSA audio devices are by default muted so
run alsamixer and make sure the device isn't muted.
