When skype starts up, it checks for pulse and if it's available it only
gives you that option. If you are using pulse, then in 99.999% of cases,
that's what you want to use, not the individual alsa devices. This is
why skype hides the other options :)

Skype can adjust your mixers for you but a bug in the current beta
prevents this from working. I recently helped the Skype folk via an
interactive debugging session to identify the bug in their pulse client
implementation and fix the bug. It should be better in the next beta
I'm not certain this will fix your problem but I'd imagine it'll help!
