No sound from mythfrontend using ALSA:default or ALSA:analog on Fedora 12

I have sound in fedora 12 in all other apps EXCEPT mythfrontend when using the analog out jack. I have tried to change the audio to ALSA:default and ALSA:analog, but no sound comes out. My speakers are connected to the analog out jack. Sound was working in Fedora 11. Other users of fedora 12 reported sound only out of the ALSA:spdif on the myth user mailing list. I haven't tested that on my system.

Have you filed this downstream with Fedora? It looks like a packaging or fedora config problem.

I had the same problem.

Fedora 12 sets ALSA:pulse as the default. Since Myth turns off pulseaudio when it starts (is there a config option for this?) you get no sound.

To overcome this I added the following to my ~/.asoundrc:

pcm.nopulse {
type hw
card 0

ctl.nopulse {
type hw
card 0

I then started mythfrontend and set my sound and mixer devices in the setup to ALSA:nopulse (you need to type this in as it's not one of the defaults).

Et voila, sound!
