[mythtv-users] Do I really need PulseAudio for

[ FE/BE running 29.1 on Fedora 28 ]

Is anyone doing simultaneous sound output on Analog and HDMI?

I have onboard Analog plus HDMI from my nVidia GT-710. I split Analog to my 
stereo and the speaker in one monitor. HDMI feeds the other monitor, which has 
a pair of speakers off the headphone jack.

I have been using PulseAudio to do it for a few years, only because I couldn't 
figure out how to do it in ALSA from a swirl of different suggestions from 

But now I wonder if I can get rid of PulseAudio altogether. My FE/BE only does 
MythTV stuff so the PulseAudio stuff might be redundant.

Is anyone doing similar?
