Configuring alsa and multiple(?) sound cards


This is in regard to 13.37 of slackware.
When I run alsaconf I get several bttv and other sound cards as seen below:
| |bt87x Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11) │ │
│ │bt87x Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11) │ │
│ │bt87x Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11) │ │
│ │bt87x Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11) │ │
│ │via82xx VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controll│ │
│ │legacy Probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips
I tried to run alsaconf once for each type but aplay -l always shows:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 2: V8235 [VIA 8235], device 0: VIA 8235 [VIA 8235]
Subdevices: 4/4
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
Subdevice #2: subdevice #2
Subdevice #3: subdevice #3
card 2: V8235 [VIA 8235], device 1: VIA 8235 [VIA 8235]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Are these all sound cards?? I know V8235 is. So why is it card 2 where/which is card 1?
Can I edit alsaconf output to include the others as I seen done elsewhere?

From another of your threads .http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...2/#post4865143

Selected device: BT878 video (Hauppauge (bt878))
I believe your problems with your webcam and perhaps now sound stem from this TV tuner card. It probably has some sound capability and is also interfering with device assignment with your webcam.

Perhaps you could start with looking at the documentation in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux/bttv/ and then google for other people's experience with your card model. Hauppage do have a page on Linux driver support.

Great thought! Will explore ASAP.
Nope. Looked into current /var/log/messages and get:
3.783965] sn9c102: V4L2 driver for SN9C1xx PC Camera Controllers v1:1.47pre49

All the a/v is registered but I am wondering about nouveau. I think it is used for the nvidia video card. Since all else seems set up this might be an area to explore.
