Problems with headphones and PulseAudio

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hi, I recently installed PulseAudio to solve a problem with sound over HDMI and it served well for that purpose. I like PullseAudio and KDE works seamlessly with it.  There is only one  thing that bothers me: adjusting headphones volume. There's no such control in kmix, only volume for analog output and for HDMI. I was watching a movie with vlc (which supports PulseAudio, I think) and I was unable to hear anything on my headphones. I tried with every option in kmix and vlc, and in the end I had to fall back to the good old alsamixer to rise  the headphones volume.My questio (HowTos)
