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
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
