Submitted by mattia.b89

I have a Dell XPS 13 (2015) with Broadwell hardware. I am on Arch Linux x86_64, latest version of Pulseaudio and pavucontrol.
When I power on my laptop, microphone is not working. In order to enable it I have to use that instructions (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dell_XPS_13_(9343)#Enabling_the_microphone).
Issue n.1: Why my microphone is not working "automatically" ?
As you note, there are two ways in order to achieve the goal; the second one is using
pavucontrol, simply switching the two entries in the menu (full instructions here again: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dell_XPS_13_(9343)#Enabling_the_microphone)
Issue n.2: Why I have to switch twice in order to get the working microphone ?
