I have to agree with Mike: this sounds more like a problem with system
configuration, perhaps even the driver for your sound card. I do exactly
what you are trying to do without any modifications to ALSA's
configuration with a Realtek ALC850 codec (nVidia CK8S on-board audio).
I would suggest posting to the alsa-users mailing list (check
www.alsa-project.org); I /read/ alsa-devel daily and if it is any
indication of what alsa-users is like, the developers/moderators are
very knowledgeable (duh :) ) and helpful and should be able to point you
in the right direction.
