My speakers work correctly when the audio profile in the System Sound Settings dialog is set to "Analog Stereo Output". The internal microphone works when the profile is set to Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input, however the speakers then stop working. The other available profiles are no better.

I believe this started when I updated to 11.10. I've tried adjusting settings with pavucontrol without any luck.

The hardware in the ThinkPad T400 is:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 20f2
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
        Memory at fc020000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [60] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Capabilities: [70] Express Root Complex Integrated Endpoint, MSI 00
        Capabilities: [100] Virtual Channel
        Capabilities: [130] Root Complex Link
        Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
        Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

How can I create or obtain a profile where the input and output both work simultaneously?
