Neither. There isn't support for recording or changing channels on external

"better" meaning "any soundcard that doesn't automatically play what it gets
on the line-in". I'm using the on-board sound on my motherboard, the NVidia
MCP or whatever it's called. I also said 'try alsa' since it may work as
