No, the configuration of the new modules is supposed to be fully
compatible with the old modules.

Does the tunnel appear as a stream on Raspi?

Could you get logs from both machines?

1) remove module-tunnel-sink(-new) from default.pa if you have it there
2) disable autospawning on Raspi and the PC:
        echo autospawn = no > ~/.config/pulse/client.conf
2) start pulseaudio on Raspi and the PC with "pulseaudio -vvv"
3) Load the tunnel on the PC:
        pactl load-module module-tunnel-sink-new server=
4) Try to play something:
        paplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
5) Stop pulseaudio on Raspi and the PC with Ctrl-C.
6) Save the logs and put them to some pastebin (they're probably too
large to get through to the mailing list as attachments).
