Do you have any thoughts on the second part? I'm not getting the same
quality audio out of each of the ports, and I'm not sure where to
look. I see everything from the chipset being dumped in the /proc
codec file, and nothing appears different between the mixers/pins. Are
there any other settings which could be different? I tested using
aplay. It plays the audio out of all the output jacks and it is
audibly different just using a pair of headphones.
