OK, that makes sense.

Great. Thanks.

Since I wrote this email earlier this morning I managed to get the new
kernel booted and sound it working. MythTV works OK and controls sound
levels as long as I set the sound device to PCM inside of Myth.

The one problem I'm having right now is that when I try to shut the
machine down it hangs on 'Unloading Alsa modules". Only way out so far
is the power switch. I'm scanning around for info on this sort of
problem but haven't found anyone else reporting it as of yet. Not a
good problem but the machine is at least usable.

cheers,
Mark
