Skype doesn't record

Somehow skype doesn't attach properly to the right input port.  I'm
not sure what's going on.

Let's test with ecasound if it actually works:


 ecasound -i alsa,hw:0 -o test.wav

Ecasound doesn't record anything either.

This seems related[1].

# Suggested:

amixer sset Capture cap "Front Mic"
amixer get "Front Mic"
amixer sset Capture noplayback
amixer sset "Front Mic" noplayback
arecord foo.wav
arecord -vv foo.wav
aplay foo.wav


# This works for me:
amixer sset Capture cap "Front Mic"
amixer get "Front Mic"
amixer sset "Front Mic" noplayback

## Front Mic: 0
## Mic Boost: 0
## Capture: 77
## Capture 1: 77
