The problem existed even before I upgraded to 17.10. but now I can not
go back to that version.
I think it started to happen when upgrading the kernel version. I
thought that it would eventually be fixed but apparently I'm about the
only one seeing this.
What I do not understand is why it changes as the selected output is
present all the time, and especially when I turn off a screen that has
no audio associated with it. The monitor has no speakers.
the only think I can think of is that the display subsystem is doing
some reinit when I turn off the monitor and might remove the HDMI audio
associated with the other monitor that still is on and then reinserting
it. But why do pulse audio then switch over to that ?? is this some auto
thing like if I put in headphones.
the old GUI(unity) I could directly select sound config from the top
icons. but now I have to first go to setting then sound so its even more
work than before to get sound back.

default output changes from intel builtin to hdmi when display is
turned off. yes off not on
Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:
So if I have sound output selected to be the intel sound on the
mainboard and turn off one of my two displays the audio out is changed
to HDMI. YES OFF it's not a typo.
The Display I turn off is connected to displayport and do not even
have HDMI. The audio is switched over to the still active display.
If I then turn the display back it's still hdmi. If I then turn off
the display that has HDMI out connected. the audio is still connected
to that display. since its actually off I hear no sound but pulseaudio
still connect to it.
I have to manually open the GUI tool and change back to the correct
output when the display is turned off or when the display is blanked.
I attache the output of "pacmd list-cards && pacmd list-sinks"
ok -> ps_w1.txt
fail -> ps_f1.txt
