Description jeroen 2005-01-09 05:31:04 EST
I've got a MSI K8N Neo2 mainboard with an NVidia 250 chipset,
including an audio driver:

00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce3 250Gb
AC'97 Audio Controller (rev a1)

The machine is connected to a Logitech speakerset via a fiberoptic
cable in the IEC958 port. On Windows, i've configured it to output
sound via that port and it works great (DD5.1, DTS etc. when watching

On Linux, i have been unable to get *any* sound output via the IEC958
port. Sound output works fine via any other output (generic headphone
audio jack).

This most likely a configuration issue, but it'd be nice if we
eventually get a GUI for this. Perhaps via GStreamer?

After a little reading @
it turns out i just had to change the "defaults.pcm.device" in
/etc/alsa/alsa.conf from "0" to "2". It now outputs via IEC958.
