You might want to set up the rate conversion anyhow. I found that my
soundcard only outputs to SPDIF if the sample is in certain formats
(16bit 44.1KHz, 48KHz). I believe this is pretty common. It means that
without the rate conversion any music or video file you play which has
audio at a different rate or sample size will not play sound (at least
not through SPDIF).
