I just solved a problem I was having with my spdif output and wanted to
share with the group.
I use spdif outputs for all my sound. I have two external sound
processors on two spdif outputs from my MB. One feeds stereo to my TV
and one feeds 5.1 surround to my sound system.
The problem I was having was that while digital passthrough worked with
both decoders, things like audio play and web page streaming audio only
worked on one of the processors.
I solved this by doing the following:
1) Removed my /etc/asound.conf file that was created per the digital
2) Set the default audio device to ALSA:spdif
I have Mythbuntu 8.04
ASUS M3A with Intel High Definition Audio and onboard S/PDIF outputs
I hope this helps others.
