In both alsa-info.sh outputs, you have outputs turned on, 
but they are at zero volume.  Have you tried running 
alsamixer to turn up volumes?  If you are running pulseaudio 
you might have to use pulse to turn up volumes, I don't use 
it so I can't help with that.

Alsa starts with volumes at zero by default.

The other thing is you are using an older version of 
everything.  I think the latest is at 1.0.18, and there are 
links on the page as http://www.alsa-project.org to get a 
tar ball of the very latest version available.  There are no 
guarantees, but it might help as changes go in every day.
