I've been trying, rather unsucessfully, to get mythtv working under Red 
Hat 8 with a Soundblaster 16 ISA card. With the OSS/free drivers I simply 
end up with a "device busy" when mythtv tries to access /dev/dsp for both 
record and playback. When I try to use the ASLA drivers, it simply blocks 
the playback operation until the recording one would complete (ie: it 

As my TV card is a bt878, I've tried to use that as the input source (I 
also tried turning on my internal sound card and using that as a secondary 
playback source) but I can't seem to convince mythtv .7 to use seperate 
input/output devices, it seems to only want to use /dev/dsp or /dev/dsp1, 
not both.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
