I can see my card in /proc/asound/cards:

$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [Generic        ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
                      HD-Audio Generic at 0xfeb44000 irq 40
 1 [SB             ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
                      HDA ATI SB at 0xfeb40000 irq 16

But I can't play sound on it:

$ aplay -D hw:1 /usr/share/sounds/speech-dispatcher/test.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/speech-dispatcher/test.wav' : Signed
16 bit Little Endian, Rate 16000 Hz, Mono
aplay: set_params:1239: Channels count non available

AFAIK, I shoudn't be able to play anything on ALSA if pulseaudio is
using it. So I stopped pulseaudio but got the same error msg.

Thinking that 16kHz mono, is probably not the best choice for aplay, I
made a 44100 Hz stereo wav file. Then aplay gives me no error and is
apparently playing the file, but there is no sound. Running alsamixer,
nothing seems to be muted. I have full volume bars on Master, Speaker
and PCM. I have green 00 on Master and Speaker. Auto-mute is disabled.
