It's probably using a wrong device. Latest svn should be a bit safer now as it 
gives DEV=0 devices a slight preference over DEV>0 (those are the ALSA device 
numbers - not card). Another, more serious problem that jstubbs has been 
looking into is that for some hardware devices are listed with the exact same 
name, resulting in only one of those being shown/used. The latter is 
currently only fixable by adding an entry to the hardwaredatabase (as 
documented on the website).
