That's right.

However, off-list I'll send a config to Francois.

First off all, for testing purpose use the analog outputs with ALSA.
Ensure that the card will be hw:0, the default device. Make it the
first entry for "options snd slots=" in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf 
# ALSA module ordering
options snd slots=snd_hdspm,snd_ice1712,snd_ice1712

After that reboot.

Launch hdspmixer, the card should appear as card:0.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ hdspmixer

Restoring last presets used

Then to load the file in hdspmixer click   File > Open preset file

Load the file   demo.1.mix   I sent off-list.

You should get sound by the analog line outs and by the phones out.
