Hi everyone,

I have a little headless pulseaudio machine to be used as a network
speaker system.
This pulseaudio setup is of-course publishing it's presence via avahi.

My problem is that the name used is not very... poetic, something like
>>> list-sinks
1 sink(s) available.
  * index: 0
        name: <alsa_output.usb-1130_USB_AUDIO-00-default.analog-stereo>

So, I would like to change the name displayed by avahi. How could I do
that ? (I have tryed changing the sink property "name", but that is
not what gets displayed by avahi...)

Thanks for this wonderful piece of software,
