Ubuntu Studio Precise chips with a new version of PA and a PA Jack
bridge. RME HDSPe AIO started working when PA was removed, it didn't
work with PA. Regarding to this thread it's irrelevant.

BOT as mentioned before, the OP seem to use GNOME, so it's likely that
he already has PA installed. Audio out is ok, so PA doesn't cause
trouble, but it also doesn't auto-mute the speakers.

So EVERYBODY who brings up to install or not install PA does babble and
doesn't help.

Are there settings for PA, ALSA some GNOME mixer or what ever, that
enables what the OP needs?
