The last time someone assured me that a card supported HWMix, it turned out that he was using dmix without realising it.

Can you confirm that you can still play two sounds concurrently with the following $HOME/.asoundrc file, please?

pcm.XFi {
    type plug
    slave {
        pcm "hw:0"

So you would run the following command simultaneously across two terminals:

$ aplay -D XFi <wav-file>
