I had issues with front headphones jack not working after I changed my motherboard to an ASUS P5K/1600 one.
I kinda fixed it (I think have a problem with totem not using pulseaudio but something else)
First, I did aplay -l
so it had 2 "subdevices" this is apparently very rare. My guess was that subdevice #1 was the front headphone jack. None of my programs was using that subdevice.
vx@vx:~$ LANG=EN aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: VT1708B Analog [VT1708B Analog]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
So I did:
And headphones were working, problem was getting to make pulseaudio use them which I eventually did by :
aplay -Dhw:0,0,1 somewavfile.wav
sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa
Just before the:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:0,0,1
Line, restarted and a new device was appearing in pulseaudio. I used pulseaudio manager's "configure local sound server" to create a virtual device that sent input to both devices. I made this new virtual device the default. headphones work in Rhythmbox but not in totem for some reason.

I also have another problem with PCM mixer getting muted whenever I log-in, this seems to get fixed temporarily by removing ~/.pulse and ~/.pulse-cookie, but it gets ruined again eventually.
Edit: I deleted ~/.pulse and ~/.pulse-cookie again then rebooted, and now everything seems to work 100%, headphones work in totem and there is no PCM muting on init.
