just one question, can I tell PA which device to use if I have more than
Yes, of course. Right now, support for multiple audio devices is one
of the hottest features of PA. You might want to have a look on the
screencast linked in this blog story of mine:
Let's say I have regular boxes and an USB audio device (headset),
PA grab them both? Just one, switch automatically from one to the other
when I plug in the headset ? None of the above?
As mentioned a million times already, PA hooks into HAL to be notified
about USB hotplugs. I does so to make use of the devices as soon as
they become available.
You really should have a look on the screencast linked above.
