Glad to be helpful. I spent may be 1week in total over the years playing
with that. Each time I had a new machine with a different audio chip inside
sound was not working.
I use debian stable with custom built kernel. Last year when I received my
Dell e5440 - again no sound. I then found out the trick with the
enable=0,1. In your case it is the opposite.
This is not perfect  because you can use one but not both. AFAIR it is
something in alsa - I think that someone mentioned something about mixer
defaulting to 0=first device and because hdmi shows as first ... and s.o.
It could be that the presence of two messes something somewhere. I hope
they fix it somewhen soon. Unfort. no idea where one could raise a bug for
