maybe you should try to select a channel in the mixer as recording
channel. I prefer aumix to do this. aumix is a comandline utility based
on ncurses where you can navigate with the arrow keys. With space you
can select the necessary record channel. Which you have to choose
depends on your soundcard. With my Intel builtin soundcard I have to
choose PCM or Line1.

Yes, I use ices2 for streaming audio to servers with various music
players. I don't use xmms. For me its better to use programs like mpd,
mplayer or many other. ;-)
