|Since d-u this morning, audio volume is reduced -- turning up volume in alsamixer and pavucontrol can partially offset the effect, but not fully. Radiotray, flash, and audio players are all affected. My audio is Intel HDA and has worked flawlessly for a year. There have been no hardware or software changes to my system since it was working normally. I'm going to check my other desktop and a netbook to see if it has affected those also. Anyone else seeing this?

EDIT: Upon thinking about who was visiting my house last night, perhaps my speaker volume was turned down with the mechanical volume control ....
