Maybe this helps maybe not, but I had a similar problem. Though I have
a "cd audio" slider apparently alsa has mistaken this for something
else since this does not change cd audio volume. I tried all of the
available ones though (and with my card it's a couple) and one of them
(I think it was 'center') actually changed cd volume. So maybe you
have the same problem too, in which case there is a bug.
