You don't seriously expect me to show this document to a standard Linux
This is designer talk!
The normal user needs a manageable guideline.

Is there a(n) (up2date and reliable!!) database of Codecs, PCs and its
interface implementations and testrecords
somewhere?  Let me know there is one.

My role: I am just gathering the problems over there
I am making sure that the mixer issue is clarified over there at
Ubuntuforums as well
as the model-id part. Beyond that everything else will exceed my capacities.

The model-id part, if you read Takashi's document, sounds IMO pretty fluffy.

You can't expect a user to try all model-ids, to find the right one.
You need to set up a database for that. Expecting the normal user to fiddle
with module options, is also not what I'd honestly expect from a 2009 Linux
sound layer.

Sorry for sounding maybe a bit harsh. But the issues of "My headphone jack
is not working" "My speakers are not working"
"I got noise on my speakers" "I can't use my digital out" asf asf somehow
have to get under control.
It is obvious that a normal user can not handle this.

A reliable, well maintained database and  user documentation would be a IMO
a nice starting point.
