Unfortunately, ices2 isn't writing anything to the logs.  I've got them on
debug mode, but there still isn't anything being written to indicate it's
having a known problem.

As far as the interference goes, I've found that reducing the iGain and amping
the input source seems to reduce the interfencence a good deal, at least, good
enough such that it's only a low murmur in the background.  I have tinkered
with the bitrates, however, and have found them to have little effect.  Unused
inputs have all been muted.

The secondary (PCI) card still only broadcasts silence even when changing the
settings mentioned above.  It continues to send no sound even when I have a
microphone connected to the card and I can hear it over the local speakers. 
Nothing on the mixer app seems to change this.
