[ubuntu server] Sound issues (again!!)

i have posted previously about my sound issues in the Ubuntu servers forum here to which i had no response... so i have gathered some more (hopefully helpful) information to see if this can be solved Smile

I am running: kernal 2.6.28-15-server as a small web host and fileserver, which provides a media function to my TV via xbmc, my s-video output and the sound hooked up to an amp. The problem i am having is that although the sound works it is soooo quiet that i have to have the amp on max to hear anything! and even then, when watching a movie it can still be almost inaudable dialogue.

I already have alsa-base and alsamixer and pulseaudio installed - and turned upWink so i have looked at some of the other threads with "sound" in the title, and read the sticky above, hopefully some of this info will help to solve my problem Smile
