I stumbled about the exact same issues about one year ago with SiS
7012 (CMedia 9739A) sound chip (also ASRock board). According to the
alsa-project mailing list (at that time) this seems to be a hardware
restriction. There was no resolution available, recommendation was to
install another sound card (e.g. SB). Therefore, I would also be
interested in a solution.
