I tried it, it went on generating the kvm command line with none instead
of spice as:
-device 'ich9-intel-hda,id=audiodev0,bus=pci.2,addr=0xc' -device
'hda-micro,id=audiodev0-codec0,bus=audiodev0.0,cad=0,audiodev=none-backend0'
-device
'hda-duplex,id=audiodev0-codec1,bus=audiodev0.0,cad=1,audiodev=none-backend0'
-audiodev 'none,id=none-backend0'

instead of the original:
-device 'ich9-intel-hda,id=audiodev0,bus=pci.2,addr=0xc' -device
'hda-micro,id=audiodev0-codec0,bus=audiodev0.0,cad=0,audiodev=spice-backend0'
-device
'hda-duplex,id=audiodev0-codec1,bus=audiodev0.0,cad=1,audiodev=spice-backend0'
-audiodev 'spice,id=spice-backend0'

And this works flawlessly…

However, I guess I need to deploy the full version to have the webui
integrating it, but I can follow up on that…

Gilles
