So which one is your preferred card (where your audio system is plugged in)?
Have you tried setting the other in the Output configuration of pulse audio?
Before upgrading - did you use pulse or plain alsa?
can help see the cards in their order
will give you more detailed information, which you can use in aplay to test
each card directly
aplay -Dsysdefault somewavfile.wav
aplay -Dplughw:CARD=PCH,DEV=0 somewavfile.wav
After I upgraded to jessie mixer was muted. Unfortunately alsamixer is
hooked to the default pulse audio, so to get it working with the card
directly rather with pulse I use alsamixer -c0 you can also go for
BTW alsa is not a process running so ps -A | grep alsa does nothing.
I hope this helps
