[TriLUG] Ghosted audio with MythTV

The bttv card used to, at least, need the audio fed into the
line input of the soundcard and if you didn't mute it, you would
get this effect. This is exactly why I switched to a WinTV PVR
since I was seeing the exact same thing. I believe newer
versions of the bttv driver can read the audio directly, but I'd
check to see if you need to mute some other input.

When viewing some previously recorded shows, if something else is being recorded at the same time I'll hear the audio from the new recording in addition to the previously recorded show's audio. Worst yet, it's not a simple pass-through - it appears to actually be incorporated in the recording and replays exactly the same each time the recording is played.

It's most commonly encountered while watching a recording while something else is being recorded at the same time, however it doesn't always happen under those circumstances. It seems to always occur when I attempt to watch something as it's being recorded.
