[pulseaudio-discuss] Pulseaudio Merges Speakers and Frontjack

I can no longer mute my builtin Speakers of my notebook separately from
the headphone-jacks (I've two of those)
In ubuntu 11.04 I could manually switch between Analog Output and Analog
Speakers in the Audio-Settings, now there's only Analog Speakers
In Alsamixer I have Master, Speaker, PCM, Front and some switches etc. I
can adjust them, but when I change the Volume via Indicator or
shortcuts, they are reset to 100, Master is leveled.
It would be no problem if connected jacks would be recognized and
speakers muted automatically, but that doesn't work either.
Switching between Analog Speakers and Analog Output was also some kind
of workaround, but It worked for me.
I asked on IRC if anyone could help me adjusting the configuration.
*mkbosmans told me to write a mail to the list.
*Here's some extracts:
phiphi:* hello can anyone assist me in configuring my (pulse)audio on
ubuntu, so that I can mute speakers?22:06:09
*phiphi:* In ubuntu 11.04 I could manually switch between Analog Audio
Output and Analog Speakers in the Audio-Settings22:07:06
*mkbosmans:* phiphi, and now there's no choice in ports anymore?22:08:34
*phiphi:* I still can mute Speaker via alsamixer, but the
volume-indicator or whatever is behind it (guess pulseaudio) has bound
the channel Speaker and Master together. When I change volume via
indicator it resets the Speaker channel.22:08:59
*phiphi:* No, now there's only Analog Speakers22:09:29
*mkbosmans:* the problem lies in line 316: Removing path 'analog-output'
as it is a subset of 'analog-output-speaker'22:26:23
*mkbosmans:* I had problems with subset path removal too22:27:06
*mkbosmans:* Can you send a problem description to the mailing list,
with a link to this output? Please explain clearly (e.g. in case of
functionality you are missing of the alsa-mixer control elements) why in
your case the removal of the analog-output path is not desired22:28:17
*mkbosmans:* phiphi, for reference see my mail to the list with the
subject [PATCH] alsa-mixer: Take channel mask of volume element into
account when finding a subset path
killall pulseaudio ; LANG=C pulseaudio -vvvv > /tmp/pulseaudio_vvvv 2>&1
Output: http://pastebin.com/kvcYSth8 <http://pastebin.com/kvcYSth8>
Output and result differ between different tries. Sometimes I have no
longer an "Internal Analog Device" and the problem-line does not appear.
like in the following
My sound-hardware is: HDA Intel, IDT 92HD75B3X5
I'm glad If I can help improve pulseaudio (to work on my hardware ;-)
Thanks for your help
