SubjectRe: ALC883 recording troubles...
Hi Takashi,

I am still finding this recording +ve saturation on my ALC883 Intel
HDA sound device with 2.6.27-rc3 (ie ALSA 1.0.17 drivers) and ALSA
1.0.16-1 libraries on Ubuntu Intrepid.

The previous workaround still 'gets us out of jail':

# ./hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x23 SET_AMP_GAIN_MUTE 0x7180
nid = 0x23, verb = 0x300, param = 0x7180
value = 0x0

Note, we see this message "hda_codec: Unknown model for ALC883, trying
auto-probe from BIOS..." as before on this Asus P5E-VM HDMI
motherboard with current BIOS.

How can we improve the situation, as out the box, the front/rear mic
inputs are (still) useless?

Many thanks,
