I use pulse audio with myth. It works just fine, and I like it.It allows me
to control my two
sound cards very easily.

What I am saying is that you do not need to uninstall anything to turn pulse
Think of it as a path that alsa sends the sound before it reaches the sound
You can just choose another path. It is like compiz/beryl for video. You can
use it or not.
I did not understand if you do not have sound at all, or just can not hear
it on your Onkio
Alsa is not easy to configure. If it works out-of-the-box, great. Otherwise,
you will have to look for a solution. The first attempt is always upgrading
to the newest version,
