-------- snipped much additional information ------------
I don't have anything to add, except that I have a similar VIA audio
controller, and I haven't been able to get it working either. I
checked with google and found many reports of similar problems, but I
didn't find any solution that worked for me. It appears that VIA is a
good vendor to avoid for linux systems.
