I use the Creative E-MU 1616m PCIe:

   03:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value
           Subsystem: Creative Labs Device 4007

I am on Linux kernel 3.2.4, -driver and -firmware from git;
-utils from (Debian amd_64).

I have manually applied the patch from [1] and initialized
the device successfully:

There are irregularities & limitations, but I do have 48kHz
capture and playback.

I have two questions:

1.: I only use Dock ports, and I notice many irregularities in
DAC and ADC assignment; so I wonder: should


not also be loaded?

2.: I use JACK with

   input: hw:0,2 (Mutichannel Capture/PT Playback)
   output: hw:0,3 (Multichannel Playback)

One thing that I would like to fix if at all possible: I can not assign
to Dock Phones L/R; instead they always repeat Dock DAC 1L/R, no matter
what I route there.

Is this a limitation of the firmware, or are the controls misleading me?

Kind regards & thanks in advance for any suggestions,
