This is odd, because if the rest of your linux audio goes out through 
the spdif, so should your mythtv audio. I have a Soundblaster Live, and 
everything (including mythtv) can be outputted via the spdif out 
perfectly fine.

>It should be possible with ALSA to output to the SPDIF...it sets up a device called "spdif" which I can use in conjunction with aplay using the "-Dspdif" option.  Any ideas?
You have a seperate spdif device? This may be part of the reason.

In the mythtv configuration screen, under "playback" I believe, if you 
set the output dsp to this device, what happens?
