Configuring alsa for 2 soundcards


I need an .asoundrc file to use 2 soundcards. What I need is to use one soundcard to view movies and the other to listen to music. I have an Creative Soundblaster Live 24 Bit and an onboard audio card (nvidia soundstorm - Asus a7n8x-e Deluxe motherboard).

This is my current .asoundrc file(it doesn't work if that wasn't obvious):

############################

pcm.sound-blaster{
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "audigy"
}

pcm.audigy {
type dmix
ipc_key 1234
slave {
pcm "hw:0,0"
period_time 84000
period_size 4096
buffer_size 81920
}
}

pcm.audigyls {
type plug
slave.pcm "surround51"
slave.channels 6
route_policy duplicate
}
pcm.51mix {
type route
slave.pcm surround51
slave.channels 6
# Front-left

}
ctl.sound-blaster {
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.nvidia{

}
pcm.nforce {
type dmix
ipc_key 5678
slave {
pcm "hw:0,0"

buffer_size 81920
}
}
pcm.soundstorm {

}
pcm.51mix {

slave.channels 6

}
ctl.nvidia {

}

I think the problem is with the ttable configuration, both cards have the same configuration and when I use the one for the nforce I still hear music from the Creative card, also I have to change the names of the pcms for the nvidia card to differ from the creative card. Can someone help me with the ttable configuration.... I can't find the explanations.
