I am afraid that I am now at my wit's end. Judging from all the data
that you posted earlier, it seems to me that your sound system is
configured properly. If all the channels are unmuted and the volume is
turned up fully for every one of them then I really do not know why it
does not work.
Maybe somebody else has a solution for this.
