Eventually I upgraded the drivers to 1.0.25 and everything magically worked although the previous 1.0.24 drivers weren't coughing up errors. Oh, I also had to direct myth to device hw:0,9. 0,3 and 0,7 were also present but using them resulted in silence. All three looked the same from aplay -l so I don't know what the numbers relate to.

Thanks for the reply George :)

I've tried fiddling with those hardware addresses too but still silence. 
I'll have a go upgrading alsa now. Not sure if theres a newer version in 
portage so I might have to do it by hand :/
