My recommendation is to concentrate first on getting it to work with
analog audio output. Once that's done (i.e. once you know Myth is
configured/working properly), then modify your ALSA configuration to use
S/PDIF out. I.e. walk before you try to run.
With your sound card, renaming /etc/asound.conf and ~/.asoundrc (i.e. so
you're using all ALSA defaults) should be a good analog test.
