Thanks for the response! I really appreciate it. I was running the 880G chipset, but I think I just found out what happened.
I replaced the places in the asond.conf for card 1 and device 3 in the wrong place (just "digital"), but not in the "digital-hw" like it said. I replaced the "digital" by mistake (didnt see the -hw). Anyway, it seems to be working just fine now!
Btw, for anyone else having this problem, make sure after you modify the asound.conf file, you have to either restart your computer to have it take effect, or restart alsa.
You used to be able to use the command /etc/init.d/alsa restart or stop and start, but it doesnt seem like you can do this anymore.To do this now, I just used "sudo alsa force-reload"
. Seemed to do the trick and save a reboot
Thanks for the response Pyroflea btw! I really do appreciate it
