Ok, notes for posterity:
my alsa cards look like (according to cat /proc/asound/cards):
0 [SAA7134_1 ]: SAA7134 - SAA7134
saa7133 at 0xfe9ff000 irq 16
1 [SAA7134 ]: SAA7134 - SAA7134
saa7133 at 0xfe9ff800 irq 17
2 [NVidia ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
HDA NVidia at 0xfe8f8000 irq 23
The first two are tuner cards, the 3rd one (ID 2) is the actual audio card
So I created a file /etc/asound.conf with in it:
That made sure that alsa:default now points to card 2. Then I
restarted mythfrontend and all is well.
And mplayer picks that up as well, so my videos play too.
I still don't know why the order of the devices has changes, but this
solves the issue.
