> Card: Brooketree Bt878

if you have such a card besides your (onbaord?) i8x0 (? CHx/model), the later will get another resource/device. so the mixer of the second card will be the second alsamixer. same with pcm - alsa's second pcm, ...

finaly I've solved the problem
sound card war properly installed but ....

but sound card 0 was the tv tuner
and the real sound card war installed as second
stupid isn't it
so when i was running alsamixer (default card 0) i could't change my volumes

the answer :
alsamixer -c 1
or in x mode rightclick on taskbar , add applet ,sound mixer

try changing order first. this can be done with your alsa configuration.

there should be a mixer program with alsa, saving your current mixer settings into a file at shutdown and reload it on bootup. if there is none such - consider using setmixer and other programs that can do this or simple put a line to set the mixer in a suitable bootupscript.
example "/usr/bin/rexima vol 100 -d /dev/mixer1"
