Thanks bill.

But nothing I do there causes output.

As far as I can tell, the hardware tab just shows you what HW it 
recognizes, you can't actually make any settings there.

In pavucontrol, I can see the from the audio activity bar that
the audio is getting into it, in the input tab. in the recording
tab I can see it too, but there's nothing in the playback tab that
makes it come out the speakers. :(

    Under no circumstances will I ever purchase anything offered to me as
    the result of an unsolicited e-mail message. Nor will I forward chain
    letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers
    of others. This is my contribution to the survival of the online
