the hdspm_mixer was written with the hdsp-madi card in mind, and not
with normal hdsp cards, so it is likely that it did not work out of the box.

however, it would be great if you could share your code so it can be
included in the hdspm_mixer code and everybody can profit from it.

additionally i'd like to know which functionality is missing in the
amixer object, as i would like to improve it to make it more usable.
probably file a feature request at sourceforge.net (because else, i will
probably forget about it...)

yes of course; and the world does not end at amixer and it is likely
that the problem with commas will re-appear at another application where
there happens to be no external available.

weird, here i do not remember having much problems with these cards.
