May be its the same card but reports two audio chips (hdmi+analog) - I was
expecting you confirm or reject this.

What happens if you use enable=1,1 and use the line only 1x?
I do not have time to go through the whole output you posted - may be in the
You can also play with model

I wanted to point out that this is a newer chipset and thus still

Going back to ground zero - you want to make HDMI default - use enable=1,0 -
check if it works in all applications.

Another thing to test - from looking briefly in the specs of the chip it has
at least 2 audio out jacks - you sure you are using the correct one? 
Try both of them and make sure you have unmuted all relevant channels.

hard to debug from distance this alsa stuff is!
