Output  from alsa-info.sh script

Description of problem:
I ran alsamixer -c1 then selected  f4 and turned capture up and down from 80% to 100%.

I then attempted to test the alsa play and record features on the following adapters in the same workstation:
Audigy 4 [SB0610] and SBLive! Value [CT4832] adapters.

Play and record worked on the Audigy 4 but recording through the microphone failed on the SBLive!. After removing the second adapter which was the Audigy 4 from the server the record feature worked in my workstation. 

The following command was used for this test: 
arecord -f dat -d 10 -D hw:1,0 foo1.wav

aplay foo1.wav

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL 5.9 - 2.6.18-333

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach Mic and headphones
2. Run arecord -f dat -d 10 -D hw:1,0 foo1.wav - speak into the microphone
3. Run aplay foo1.wav  - listen with headphones
Actual results:
Unable to hear audio output

Expected results:
Audio output should be captured

Additional info:
I have attached the output from alsa-info.sh script taken off the alsa debug page:

Please, attach "not working" alsa-info.sh and "working" alsa-info.sh to compare the mixer settings...
