Bug Description

When more than one audio output source are available, gnome-settings usually picks the 1st one on the list. There is no way to save any alternate choice. For example I have:

HDMI/DisplayPort2 Built-in Audio
Digital Output (S/PDIF) Built-in Audio
Analog Output Built-in Audio.

The default output each time the system boots is set to HDMI/DisplayPort2 Built-in Audio and I have to manually change it to Analog Output Built-in Audio to which my PC speakers are connected. There is no "save this as default" option on this screen. So, I have do this each time I boot.
