Yes I have one and made it work using hp-dv5 model. I was trying to
debug more but didn't have time. Today I tried with 1.0.21 but still no
sound without giving model.

The strange thing is that eventhough different dv6 boxes have exactly
the same card/codec, 2 users still can't get sound with model=hp-dv5 or
another thing while another one is able to have sound.
