Thanks to all who replied.. turns out it was just the connector that
needed the pins changing.. I was loathe to do this again as the first
time I did the system would not power up... so I left the GND and
swapped the SPDIF over to the only other connector and voila!
Only things is I had to disable AC3 and DTS passthrough to get some of
my vids sounds to work.
Thanks Again. :)
