any chance pcm2 is the cdrw+dvd device?
There is no lineout jack, just 2 (black) headphone
jacks on the front. 1 has auto detect, other does not.
Think the headphone jacks are a quad (complex) setup.
External mic jack (black) is also on the front pannel.

If pcm2 is the cd/dvd, does the snd_hda driver support
a method for routing between codecs?

Does the mixer interface support a method for
accessing the mute widgets?

Reloading FreeBSD on the machine now, will try
latest patch soon.
