Thanks for the help, but I  don't  think the sound was really working 
correctly (alsamixer still wouldn't run).  I had tried a bunch of things 
to fix it, so rather than unwind all the changes, I dumped the box and 
reloaded mythbuntu from scratch (it's a test box).  Then removed 
pulseaudio and set the alsa global default hardware.  Sound works in the 
chromium and works in netvision; except the volume is really low in 
netvision...not sure what that's about.

Remove pulseaudio:
$sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio

Set global alsa default in /etc/asound.conf:
(create file and add this to it)

pcm.!default {
         type hw
         card 1
         device 3

ctl.!default {
         type hw
         card 1
