For the reference this this list of nodes on ALC268 (main mobo):

0x01 - params

output streams:
0x02 - DAC1 + volume
0x03 - DAC2 + volume (only headphones)
0x06 - s/pdif-out
0x1D - BEEP

input streams:
0x07 - ADC1
0x23 - ADC1 multiplexer + volume
0x08 - ADC2
0x24 - ADC2 multiplexer + volume

output pins(*):		(***)

0x14 - LINE-OUT		headphones	<- 0x0f - line-out (mixer) <- DAC1 + beep
0x15 - HP-OUT		speakers	<- 0x10 - hp-out  (mixer) <- DAC1 + DAC2 + beep
0x16 - MONO-OUT		N/A		<- 0x0e - mono out (mixer) <- DAC1
0x1E - spdif		

input pins(**):
0x12 - DMIC1/2		N/A
0x13 - DMIC3/4		N/A
0x18 - MIC1		external mic + boost
0x19 - MIC2		internal mic + boost
0x1A - LINE-IN		line-in + boost
0x1C - CD-IN		N/A		

*  Most output pins may be used as input pins
** LINE-IN, MIC1 might be output of DAC1
*** those are pins that are connected on my main mobo.

/proc/asound/card0/codec#0  is attached (also for main computer, I will 
test the 'one' tomorrow
