Hello Curt,

Oh, and I can't be arsed to try PA in the first place.   :-)

Or are we dealing with the supernatural here (software from Hell)?

I'm wary because of all the tales of woe I've read.  Obviously, there
are plenty of ppl for whom PA causes no problems at all.

Works a charm for me, and has for years, BUT every once in awhile something buggers alsa settings and I have to use alsamixer to raise the volume levels back up to 100%. Pulse rides on top of alsa, so alsa has to be working before pulse can do it's thing.

I also recommend cheap USB sound devices as they seem to always work. Whatever passes for a sound device on my laptop never seems to work, but plugging in a pair of USB headphones always does. Ric
