Ta.  I thought I'd got these sorted right, but I can compare amixer
output directly now, which might reveal that I'm being thick. ;-)
Alternatively, it could simply be that these switches don't work
properly on Shuttle hardware - which would be irritating.  Certainly
when I was twiddling with things last night I wasn't getting anywhere,
and I did try those settings both ways around (and both mic and
line-in sockets).  The final straw will be to get either a PVR250
or a USB sound card, which bypasses the problem quite neatly, but
given that that's another 30-60 quid for a bit of hardware I shouldn't
need, I object to paying it ;-)
