Hello: I am using ALSA 1.0.25 with Debian Wheezy and XFCE 4.8. My sound card is an on-board NVidia CK804. I do not have PulseAudio installed.
When using either xfce4-mixer or alsamixer to adjust volume, both Master and PCM sliders must be at the bottom in order for the speaker volume to be zero. In my past experience with both computer mixers and hardware mixers, the Master slider, (as well as any slider controlling the volume of an individual source), is always capable of setting the output volume to zero independently of other slider settings.
Can anybody help me to get these controls working the way I'm used to?
