https://bbs.archlinux.org – I'm trying out a USB Headset (card 1) which is working fine for all applications to play sound at the same time, except for MPD. (Tried mplayer, aplay, flash/youtube, playing games, skype)MPD still uses Intel (card 0) as default for some reason even though I have not changed anything from the default settings in /etc/mpd.conf:audio_output { type "alsa" name "My ALSA Device" }I also tried mixing up with some of these settings but could not get it to work. I can get MPD output to the USB Headset with "hw:1,0" but that does not use dmix and locks the soundcard (HowTos)
