Up2date reinstall of the latest FU8 respin.

And there is also a pcHDTV-3000 which has a connexant audio but its obviously 
a mic level output, and since tvtime doesn't work on the video card 
associated with the last device listed above, the point is moot till it does 
work.

The first device above I have not been able to get a peep out of, so I've made 
the second one, the Audigy2, the default.  And I have NDI where to plug 
anything that looks like audio into that ATI based HD-2400-Pro video card, 
but lspci says its there.

Testing the sound for the audigy2 in system-config-soundcard works, but places 
like utube are silent.  As is cnn et all since the last reboot.

2 questions:

do we have a 'vu meter' that can be switched to monitor the various audio 
inputs?

And when I had to reinstall, I see that pulseaudio was installed, and a now 
frozen 'lsof|grep audio' returns this, but has not returned a prompt.
[root coyote cards]# lsof |grep audio
pulseaudi  3473      root  txt       REG        8,3    57972   
53801556 /usr/bin/pulseaudio
artsd      3528      root  mem       REG        8,3    96380   
53795593 /usr/lib/libaudio.so.2.4
artsd      3528      root  mem       REG        8,3   171580    
5603705 /usr/lib/libaudiofile.so.0.0.2

Is this yet another case where I need to remove as much PA as I can in order 
to get working sound again, or is there a configurator for this PITA that 
might be able to fix this?  The silence here is deafening.

Thanks.
