Microphone HDA Intel... so many issues i cannot tell the woods from the tress anymore
Please, if anyone can help me... i'm starting to spend way too much time on this, reading lots of articles about my problem, and nothing seems to work...
If you just google anything related to Hda Intel card and Ubuntu, there are lots of people with serious problems with this type of card, and I am no different. I am on Ubuntu 8.04 64 (fresh install, but i had exactly the same problems on 8.04 i386), and my card is
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
However, by looking at the usual problems, I cannot help but feeling that the solutions proposed (recompiling ALSA, mess with /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file, etc) might not be what I needed, since my problem seems to be (but only seems!) slightly less complicated...
In general, sound works fine for me; speakers fine, volume control responsive, headphones fine, and i can even hear myself when using the microphone (with a headset plugged in)...
However, i cannot, no matter how I try, configure the microphone capture, so it seems like it is going directly through the card, and not being captured at all. It doesn't work in Skype, Ekiga, or Audacity either.
I guess I am just at a loss on how to configure the capture settings, since all the rest of the sound configuration seems to be fine...
please, if anyone knows anything about it, or has had any luck with this specific card, let's talk... here are some of my configurations,including a screenshot of my mixer settings, for maybe I am doing something wrong with this capture settings in the first place
user@user-laptop:~$ cat /proc/asound/pcm
00-04: ALC883 Analog : ALC883 Analog : capture 1

Any help, will be greatly, greatly appreciated!
