I've got an Indigo IO as well, and what I learned was that there is
firmware that needs
to be loaded. Be sure that you've installed the alsa-firmware package.
This package
contains firmware for the Indigo IO as well as a host of other cards.
I'm not sure if a
reboot is required after install, but it certainly wouldn't hurt.

Good Luck,
