Hi All,

I've been using Karmic since it was released. I had to rebuild my computer but salvaged my hard-drives. Anyhow my new rig has a new motherboard Asus P7P55D Pro (old rig had Asus P4P800).

Anyhow, in my new computer I don't get any sound in my line-in. How can I listen to line-in so I can test to see if it's working? Since I'm using ubuntu that was setup on my old computer, do I have to reconfigure something that's related to sound, to get line-in?


I know the problem is with line-in because I have a TV card that I have to connect to my line-in. When I connect the jack in the tv card to a speaker, I hear sound. But when I connect to the TV card to my line-in, and the speaker to the speaker jack. I get no sound.

Also, since I can use pulse-applet to control my sound, is it possible to control line-in with pulse-applet? I've added the result of running `alsamixer` ( I don't know if it matters since I have pulseaudio)

The problem was with my drivers. This (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/474359) fixed my problem.
