I don't have gmix or gmixer, but I have been able to run the gnome-soundcard-volume applet (if I right click on the speaker in the top right of the FC6 window.  I have set all of the options to be visible in the Preferences dialog, and my nVidia CK804 has the following settings:

Playback tab:
    Master            On (for both channels)
    Master Mono  On
    PCM               On (for both channels)
    Surround         Off (for both channels)
    Center             Off
    LFE                 Off
    Line In             On (for both channels)
    CD                  On (for both channels)
    MIC                Off
    Phone              Off
    IEC958 Playback AC97-SPSA  On
    PC Speaker     Off
    Aux                 Off
Capture Tab:
    On (for both Volume AND Mic)
Switches tab:
    The following are checked on:
        Line In Capture, CD Capture, Video, IEC958, IEC958 Capture, Mix, Mix Mono, Duplicate Frontend, and External Amplifier
    The following are checked off:
        Mic Capture, Mic Boost, Mix Front Input, Phone Capture, Aux Capture
Options tab:
    Surround Jack: Shared
    Mic Select: Mic1
    IEC958 Playback Source: PCM
    Mono Output Select: Mix
    Channel Mode: 2ch

I know this seems like alot, and I can get screen captures if anyone thinks it'll help.  I've been able to get test recordings going, DVDs being ripped down, and CDs being ripped down, but all of these don't mean scratch if I can't hear anything.

Thanks again for any and all help.
