Use "default" for the ALSA mixer.

The Xbox doesn't have a hardware mixer.  I haven't worked on my Xbox 
frontend enough yet to try software mixing yet.  Of course the version 
of ALSA for Xebian is ancient and I have been unable to get CVS versions 
to work on the Xbox.  Unfortunately I won't have any time to spend on 
the Xbox frontend for at least a few weeks.
