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

Probably not. The oldest Sound Galaxy I have is a NX Pro 16 (I38-MMSN803) 
and I haven't yet tested on that either. That one does have an EEPROM but 
the jumper doesn't select between EEPROM and software but between EEPROM and 
  "factory setting" which probably implies it's not software configurable.

(other than by writing to the EEPROM and rebooting the card with the jumper 
set to EEPROM; writing to the EEPROM is yet another fun little project for a 
future HWDEP interface in the driver but it's not an important feature).

Does your NX Pro have an EEPROM? It should be a small 8-pin chip marked with 
something close to "X24C00", near a clock chip and probably near an Intel 
8051 microcontroller. And does it have a jumper that sounds like it has 
anything to do with things?

0 and !0 are as standards compliant... :-)
