Polycom Communicator mic volume too low
When using the Polycom Communicator (Model C100S) speakerphone with Hardy, the microphone volume always remains very low. This speaker-phone was purchased primarily for use with Skype, and when trying to adjust the mixer settings in the volume control, it makes no difference. To do this I selected the USB Audio device in the volume control and whacked the volume on the mic up high, but no luck. when doing a Skype test call. the volume of the other end of the call is fine and the volume is excellent, it is literally just the mic volume being too low.
This is sound card issue - when testing recording in Audacity (using /dev/dsp1), the volume remains to be low. I tried to test using ALSA, but had problems accessing the device.
