So, if your computer has several sounds cards - which is the case when
you have both a sound card and HDMI audio - how is PulseAudio supposed
to know which sound card to use? This is in no way different to plain

FWIW, sound works in 99% of the cases right after a fresh install.
Problems like the one described by Christian usually occur on systems
which have been undergone several configuration changes and upgrades,
i.e. old systems.
