Why is sound muted?

I've got my sound working finally by setting the cx88 to 1 in /etc/modprobe.d/sound. However, now my sound card is muted and the volume set to 0 on every channel every time I boot linux. I'm running SUSE 10.3 (32-bit) and my sound card is a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz (cs46xx driver). If I unmute it and turn the volume up, it works fine. I've got the same motherboard, sound card and linux setup (without the HTPC stuff) on this PC and I've never had this problem. That makes me think it has something to do with the cx88 drivers.

Any suggestions?

I think that by default, you'd want unused sound channels to be muted so they don't pick up any extra noise... I think it is the responsibility of your mixer to save the settings and audio ports that you're using and to reinitialize them the next time the mixer is started.. At least, that's the way kmix seems to work.

What mixer are you unmuting with?
