  3. exit mythmusic (keep audio going)
  4. go into mythvideo and select a video that meets the requirements of step 1

Video plays, but no audio as Mythmusic is holding the /dev/dsp device

Yes, this is the current behavior.

If you switch to using a mixing ALSA device for output, the music will continue playing - Which is probably not what you want either.

However, this is unfortunately a feature request without at this time a patch.

Please comment on this ticket only if you are developing the patch.
