[CMI8788] Xonar DG: no front panel or recording support
Running precise, though I don't recall this working in oneiric either.
None of the front panel outputs/inputs on the Xonar DG are detected at all. They are hooked up, as it works fine on Windows. Plugging in headphones doesn't switch the output, and a microphone on the front is not detected.
In sound preferences and pavucontrol, the card is listed as having three connectors: "Analog Output / Speaker" (works), "Analog Output / Headphones 1", and "Analog Output / Headphones 2." Changing the selected connector has no effect, and reverts back to Speaker when the settings view is reloaded. Additionally, setting via pacmd results in "failed to set sink port."
Interestingly enough, alsamixer has an Analog Output selector with different outputs than reported by PulseAudio. These are Speakers, Headphones, and FP Headphones. Switching between these produces an audible "click" from the sound card (normal, it's in the switching circuit) so it's definitely communicating with the card. However, the front panel audio still does not work. Both Speakers and FP Headphones play out of the speakers, while Headphones outputs nothing at all.
Interestingly, alsamixer has no volume sliders for output, but that's a separate issue. (The output sliders do work in PulseAudio, so that's good enough for now.)
