that's the one with model=toshiba (useless)

i recompiled all the alsa-source with that option (--with-debug=detect)

you can see dmesg here: http://pastebin.ca/831221
and the result of the alsa-info.sh script with this modules/setting
here: http://pastebin.ca/831224

i've added 2 note to the bug (
https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=3659 )

still i don't know how to use the info from dmesg for fixing my card...
can you help me understanding it?

as you can read into the bug report i think it's NOT  a 5+1 sound card
there are 2 middle frequency speaker, 2 twitter and 1 subwoofer (a total
of 5 speaker)
but probably, as you said, it's a 2.1 or something like this...

anyway it doesn't work as it should

i can recompile the driver with -with-debug=full option if you need it

i didn't compiled only the hda-intel driver.. i recompiled all using
debian way (module assistant + modification to the debian/rules script)

merry Christmas and thanks for your time
