> I recently upgraded my MythTV server from Fedora 11 to Fedora 14.  Now the only way to get sound to work is to follow these steps:
> Start the audio source so that there's an audio stream
> Open the Pulseaudio Volume Control panel
> Click the "Configuration" tab,
> Change "Internal Audio" to any profile other than the current one
> Change "Internal Audio" back to the original profile ( Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958) )
> At this point, the audio works.  But if I change from watching one show in MythTV to another, I have to go through the whole process again.  It's like as soon as pulseaudio loses a signal, it has to be reset.  The issue is odd enough that I don't even know what keywords to search for to see if this is a common problem - has anyone heard of this?  Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix or troubleshoot it?
