I could not agree with you more Karl. Over the years on different distro's 
I've got the sound sorted, and now pulse audio is brought into the equation, 
and wants to screw the sound up again. I'm sure there are probably some 
benefits to using pulseaudio, but at the moment all I want is my sound to 
work, and pulseaudio on F8 is messing with it.

I won't go into the problems I'm having with udev in the ordering of video 
devices for my webcam, and tvcard. that's for another day. All I can say is 
that pre udev kernels always order the tvcard as /dev/video0, and the webcam 
as /dev/video1, but it's really hit and miss with kernels that use udev. I've 
reached the stage where I have 2 desktop icons for Xawtv. 1 pointing 
to /dev/video0, and the other to /dev/video1. I'm watching the Marx brothers 
on the TV at the mo, and this sounds like a Marx Bros situation. If one don't 
work try the other.

Hope your having a nice evening.

Nigel.
