I am trying to get audio to work again after a Fedora 8 -> 9 upgrade.
Thanks to the wonderfull setup pulseaudio is not really easy to manage
although I want just one simple thing.

We have:

# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
                      HDA NVidia at 0xf4100000 irq 23
 1 [M2496          ]: ICE1712 - M Audio Delta DiO 2496
                      M Audio Delta DiO 2496 at 0xa000, irq 18
 2 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
                      HDA ATI HDMI at 0xf3010000 irq 16

# lspci -nn
00:07.0 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation MCP65 High Definition
Audio [10de:044a] (rev a1)
01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller [0401]: VIA Technologies Inc.
ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller [1412:1712] (rev 02)
02:00.1 Audio device [0403]: ATI Technologies Inc RV630/M76 audio device
[Radeon HD 2600 Series] [1002:aa08]

I just want the on-board HDA-Intel (card 0) to be used as default by
Pulseaudio has nothing to do with the M2496 card nor with the HDMI card.

Both the Nvida and HDMI card use HDA-intel as driver.
In the past the Nvidia card worked OK, but now the HDMI card is
detected/recognised so pulseaudio thinks it must use the HDMI card
and/or the M2496 card. Not just the Nvidia card.
Due to the very intuitive PCI-ID numbers and the easy controls to tell
pulse-audio what card to use and what card NOT to use I am seeking help

So in a nutshell: pulseaudio works, just not with the right card.
How do I explain pulseaudio to bother with just alsa card 0?

Kind regards,
