An another reason may be the firmware version. As far as I know, last alsa
dirver is known to work with cards up to version 1.52. Has anybody any info
about 1.53?

What does 'lspci | grep RME' show at the end of line ("rev XX")? Just convert
this number from hex do decimal (i.e. "rev 98" corresponds to v.1.52).


BTW, another question about alsa 1.0.14 and HDSP firmware 1.52. 192KHz sample
rate doesn't work for me (but works fine with, say, 1.0.14RC3). I have submited
a bug, but still have not got any reaction from the alsa development team:


Does this issue exist for me only?
