Larry -

Setting 'capture' as you suggested is still pretty tricky. I need to set
it to a different value for each of the inputs I want to record from -
Mic, CD, or Line. Setting the volume on those devices does not affect the
record levels, only the playback levels. The result is that I can choose
different volume levels for playback on the different inputs, but I only
have one setting for capture volume, and it needs to be changed when I
change from recording one device to recording another.

It turns out that not all sblive cards operate the same way too, which
further complicates life. I sure wish there were a manual for these alsa

But anyway, I think I am getting on top of things here.
