These are the two names here.

Your slaves name is wrong. It's not the name assigined to the sink
itself which you listed above.

Also, I believe that the combine sink no longer needs a master argument
and you can support all the devices as slaves.

 load-module module-combine

> As you can see, i cannot find a name for the local sink tunnel, so im using the name of the index 0 sink.

No you're not, you're using a made up name :p

Does the tunnel work by itself? Have you made sure that it is physically
working before you try and use it as a slave of the combined sink? You
should test each stage.

You can test easily via:

mplayer /path/to/a/file.mp3

(or any PA application)

You could also just produce some sound locally then move the stream to
the tunnel from the "Playback" tab in pavucontrol.

Hope this helps.
