Yeah I uninstalled it but it didn't make any difference. The link I
found though talked explicitly about _running_, not just having it


Now I'm thinking the default ALSA output device has changed.
/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p means it's trying to playback to device 0, which is
actually the video tuner card. When I force mplayer to output to the
right hardware device, mplayer works. Now I need to change the default
alsa device so mythfrontend will pick it up as well.
