View Full Version : Crackling audio

March 3rd, 2010, 04:03 PM
I have an audigy 2 sound card, it has worked great for me for years. I installed Mythbuntu 9.10 and it works great until mythtv starts; then the audio starts this awful constant crackle. It's so bad I have to mute my machine after a while, I've scoured forums and can't find a solution that works, though various people have attributed the crackling to various things. In addition, when I run mythtv it blocks all the other audio on my system, so if I get messaged I don't hear the notification. So what I'm looking for is:

If someone has any helpful troubleshootings suggestions
If someone has a soundcard that works with mythbuntu, allows them to play TV sound as well as sound from other sources simultaneously.

Is there any hope for me or do I need to be looking at some distribution untainted by pulse audio?
