When plugging usb audio card (correctly working with alsa) and running mplayer with parameters "-ao alsa:device=hw=1" the mplayer sound controls (eg. pressiing / and *) changes volume of the default system soundcard (eg. hw=0).

There is no necessary correlation between the device and mixer name.
While it would probably work most of the time for hw= devices it does not seem worth the effort to try to autoselect it when it will only work in a select few cases anyway.
So you'll have to specify the mixer to use with -mixer or completely switch to software volume control via -softvol.
