Well, the front page (Section 7) doesn't say much and the
troubleshooting notes say they don't apply to my PVR-250. So much for
the easy way.
Currently my user specific setup pages show /dev/dsp for the audio
device. Cycling through what it offers doesn't give me any ALSA
options at all. Can I jsut type in ALSA:hw:0,0 or ALSA:hw:1,0 there to
change sound devices?

Will consider but I've had problems dependign on .asoundrc in the
past. Not well documented out here on the fringe. ;-)
