Bug ID: 390398
           Summary: Default master volume changes when remote output is
                    found (so it seems)
           Product: plasma-pa
           Version: 5.12.1
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: applet
  Target Milestone: ---


I have a remote output from Kodi in my network, also with pulseaudio. That
makes it possible for me to manage the kodi volume right from the Plasma-pa
applet. Awesome! Really :)

While it is awesome to be able to do so, i don't quite use it. It just sits
there. That was all just fine till Plasma 5.12. Ever since i upgraded to 5.12
the plasma-pa applet "somehow" has a deep desire to put that sink as default.
Time and time again. I'm guessing it does so when it sees it, most certainly
after reboots but i've had more weird sound changes where i didn't know what
went wrong till i discovered this.

Also, i'd like to point out that this very same issue has been teasing
plasma-pa ever since it exists. In most releases it's fine, but i've had this
issue before and it was fixed some releases ago. Would it be possible for this
- rather important applet - to be a lot more conservative when it it changes

As an example, i would _not_ change the default is something suddenly appears
online on the network. It could be from any source and anyone, it should most
certainly be verified if that's going to be my default output source. Not
just.. change it.

I would *ask* to change the default if there is a device change (like a
headphone plugged in) and then do whatever i pick as the next default action
for a similar change (headphone unplugged, another headphone plugged, etc..).

You probably need more information but i'm not quite sure what to give. Feel
free to ask if that helps the debugging and fixing process.
