Microphone Inputs Reversed for Mic with Webcam

Asked by Carl on 2020-05-17

This issue has been around since earlier versions of pulse/alsa/gnome/ubuntu.

It seems to be hardware related. All versions have the same issue with input source mic.

If using pulseaudio volume controls, user can select mic from two sources, Internal and Unplugged.

The Internal mic does not work, but if you choose the Mic (Unplugged), then all works.

Sound Settings in Gnome must also be running to see the selection change, then the applications that need the mic will function normally. Gnome tries to massage the input from pulseaudio, but eventually settles down when the input sound starts to appear in the mic area (testing 1-2-3, hello, etc).

Tried troubleshooting and setting utilities, but on reboot, system returns to default. Noticed in sound drivers lots of data about Intel, this system uses AMD CPU (E350) and HD6310 GPU. Not sure what Acer did when setting up sound device.

*****This report was run without manually changing the input sources via pulseaudio volume control (was run after reboot)*******

Just for information, outputs have always been spot-on! Acer support has no BIOS updates for Linux on this machine-too old.
