Sorry, Ma...I've had no luck getting the TOSLink to light up at all.
Setting the output plug to pcm="iec958" gives me the same result as
"spdif" and "hdmi" ... that being out through the hdmi cable. Not
sure if I'm doing something wrong...but I've hassled with it for about
as much as the WAF will allow me to (seeing as our stereo has HDMI in
and out so it can sit between the frontend and the TV, she giving me
the "leave well enough alone" look ;-P)
If I find the downtime between two jobs, 8 kids, and a bunch of
hardware, I'll play with it more if it bubbles back up to the top of
my list, but no real promises...
