[alsa-devel] Can someone verify support for "AzTech Sound Galaxy Nova 16 Extra II-3D - using AZT-2316/R Chipset - FCC-ID:I38-MMSN846" ?

Only if you set the JMPCFG jumper to EEPROM; otherwise the card's just dead 
in the water until software enables it (by writing to some specific I/O 
port; not sure which).

Okay, that's unfortunate. It works fine here with my AZT2316R and AZT1605 cards.

1. Did you restore the default settings to the EEPROM with "HWSET /MR /MS"?

If an "EEPROM.SYS" is being loaded from your CONFIG.SYS in the DOS setup 
also try that HWSET after rebooting with that line commented out. maybe it's 
interfering (EEPROM.SYS is the "software" that takes on the role of the 
physical EEPROM when you have the JMPCFG jumper set to "software").

2. What do the last few lines of "dmesg" say after the modprobe?

3. Both my AZT2316A cards actually needed the JMPCFG jumper set to the 
"software" setting to even have the DSP show up at 0x220 which seems like it 
just might be a strange fluke. But if it really won't work, try the HWSET 
and loading of the snd-sb8 driver also with the JMPCFG jumper switched again...

Don't seem to have more bright ideas...
