Comment 9 for bug 380928

Getting a bit off topic here... but yes inputs are handled differently
to outputs

At the moment ear candy looks at the device name to decide to switch
the streams or not if there is not usb or bluetooth in the string it
dosnt work... I have an idea how to make this better but havnt got
around to it
