    Thank you for your answer and sorry for being unclear! This means that
    whenever I try to output regular stereo audio from files or DVB for
    example I cannot hear anything at all with 2.6.36-rcX kernels. Before
    2.6.36-rcX kernels normal stereo audio works just fine. However with
    2.6.36-rcX kernels and all the previous kernels digital preencoded
    (like Dolby Digital, DTS) audio works just fine. I am using Kaffeine
    1.0 and VLC 1.1 (both from Debian unstable) to play audio, both
    programs work exactly the same. My test method is basicly this:
    -boot with 2.6.36-rc4 or 2.6.36-rc5
    -open kaffeine or vlc
    -start playing mp3 file -> nothing comes to the amplifier
    -start playing mkv file with 5.1 track -> correct audio comes to the amplifier

    doesn't work anymore.

    Here's the alsa-info files attached from (works) and
    2.6.36-rc5 (doesn't work).
