As I said before, for those device to appear you need to have a very
recent version of ALSA installed, and they will then be showing up in
the list of devices. If they don't show up then they are not there.

No point manually entering them.

If you want to manually set things up differently, you will have
better luck in the ALSA support list because this is an alsa issue,
not a myth one
I have provided before the work around to get things to work , I won't
re-iterate them again
