Know the chip. Good device, and I had no trouble with it, but some years back. You are giving it cmipci module?
Have you looked at the chip alsamixer reports? Is it correctly identifying the chip?

Hello everyone

I have a CMedia CMI 8738 sound card with 2 stereo inputs (mic and line) and 3 out stereo (surround), my
problem is that when I start the sever jack pachtbay see me only one imput stereo and only one stereo output, I can not see all the inputs and outputs of your sound card
I'm looking to settle in 3 ways:
- Edit the file asoundrc
- Form part of the jack with different options on the command line
- Maybe using specific drivers than those alsa for this card
I tried to add the strings suggested in the various guides in asoundrc but without any results
some of you have had the same problem?
