mythtv not working since changed audio card

Reported by: dlm1065@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.19
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


1st off I am new to linux, so I apologize if i am doing something incorrect.

My specs are as follows:

* K8N-VM 
* sempron 64 
* 1 gig ram
* nvidia 6600
* Win TV go
* gentoo 2.6.16-r2 
* alsa-driver-1.0.11_rc5
* mysql-4.1.14-r1
* mythtv-0.19_p9163-r1

The K8N-VM uses the alsa hda-intel driver that and has a killer whine on the left chanel plus with the capture I couldn't run surround sound. I need suround so I got a Creative Audigy 2 sound card. I installed no problem with sound under anything. Then I started mythfrontend and I got a blank screen. Started it in a terminal and looking I saw this:

                        probably due to a driver bug or limitation.
                        You might not get any video, but we'll try anyway.

Note: I think I had the color error before but still had the video; won't swear but believe that to be true.

I know a couple more experienced linux people and in talking to them I mentioned my problem with the audigy 2 under myth and the 1 had just setup myth on a system with an audigy 2 and he also has a black screen but didn't remember if he had the overflow or not. He was using sound as modules as am I, and he said he was using slackware and a 2.6.15 kernel(not sure which one though).
