O.K., I fixed my own problem after several hours of surfing for some

I found out that mplayer did not work out of the box either (however xmms
did - which I tried at first). It turns out that this KDE stuff has a lock
on /dev/dsp!! So artsd must not run (disabled in KDE control
center->sound->sound server), or mythtv must be made artsd aware (?).
Maybe it is a FAQ candidate?

Even better, mythmusic seems to work now also.

Well - back to mythtv; I need to get this remote control working.
