Your problem has most likely been with the snd-hda-intel driver. For
some reason, at least on the STAC9200 chip (which I guess is in your
D820 too) works very strangely with the driver.

When the only capture element that can be enabled for capturing is not
enabled, the driver doesn't return any samples. This means that any
programs blocking and waiting for samples from the driver will block

Just enable the "Capture" element for capturing (using for example the
cmdline tool alsamixer, use F4 to enter the "capture side" of the mixer)
