Is ubuntu using Pulse Audio volume control? In many cases I like pulse way 
of allowing to manage and switch between multiple sound cards inputs and 
outputs even application by application but at least with Mandriva the old 
configs have been lost couple of times and I have needed to run both the 
alsaconfig and pulseaudio config for my system to get things working fine.

I use spdif output and couple of times after system updates I have not had 
any sounds available. In those cases I have needed to:
1)alsamixer -c (--> unmute spdif output)
2)pulse-audio config (select spdif for default output channel instead of 
hdmi and check from the application view that apps running realized the 
config change.
3) check that my denon amplifier realized the config change by pressing 
"auto" button that forces it's to check both the digital and analog
