Hi, after an upgrade to kernel 2.6.30 the volume of my audiochip went dramatically down. I have to turn up my speakers and the master volume of alsamixer entirely to hear anything.

Anyone with the same problem?

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.
You are right, there is now a mixer which is called "via dxs". Thank you, problem solved.
Ah, that did the trick, I was just wondering ... :-) the volume of that mixer was turned all the way down in alsamixer.
I have actually 4 VIA DXS Mixers :-/
However, that solved the problem, thanks
Anyone knows why theres another Mixer. I mean, I now have Master, PCM, VIA DXS (and software) for steering the volume... That's too much :-/
You are right, i don´t see the differences
