MythtvFrontend no sound

Running 11.3 and sound works ok in desktop, mplayer, firefox (flash) etc. System is using Pulse audio. I think that this worked before but I’m not sure. I don’t really use
this system. I do boot it every couple of days and update it. Backend is on desktop, and live TV and recordings show fine but without sound. What do I need to check?

I turned pulse-audio off in startup, but it is still showing up in a “ps -e |grep pulse”. I kill it but it comes right
back up. Would the best way to get rid of it be to uninstall everything to do with pulse-audio.

I would recommend reading the following on Multimedia:
