[CentOS] Using Pulse Audio--question

Hi all!

This seems to me as if it should be a trivial thing to do, but so far
I've wasted a lot of time on it and gotten nowhere:


I want to feed audio from a source (ipod, other player) into the audio
input on my C7 box via either the phone jack or an external USB sound
"card" I have, then I want to play it via the speakers connected to the
system.

I can find no way to do it with pavucontrol, nor the default mate
sound tool.

Using pavucontrol and the external USB sound "card" (quote marks
because it obviously isn't a "card") I can see the input coming
in, but I can't figure any way to send it back out to any output
device.

I'm not wedded to using pulse for this, I'll use alsa or whatever
else can be beaten into submission, I just can't understand why this
isn't a normal usage, and why it wouldn't be easy to do.

All (on topic) advice gladly received.

Thanks in advance!

Fred
