That maybe so, BUT which mixer??? I use Linux, particularly
Ubuntu8.10. There are three different mixer settings on my system and
the only one I added was the Gnome-alsamixer. They all seem to effect
the system, so if one is set wrong, then all of it is wrong.

I am an old Linux user and I think this is the reason for all the
problems with sound, and it might be all the problems with video. So,
my advice is if you have more than one mixer and you probably do, make
sure they are ALL set to the settings that you want, sound and video.
