could you just try the normal configure

what happens is that the VOLUME is reduced to zero or something like that

i use the same card

i am facing the same problem

at the first boot everything is heard properly and from next boots no
sound is heard from the sound card

i would suggest you play with KMIX the problem is there only

CHECK the PCM setting
