I've decided not to care much about the SPDIF. When time comes for me to
actually hook myth up for full surround output, I'll get one of those USB
sound modules that have Alsa support, such as the Creative Extigy.

I'm in your same situation, which is that putting an SVID port in a slot
isn't helpful, since my Antec Minuet case only has low profile slots. So
I'd have to figure out how to cut and shape the full height bracket into
the low height space. No thanks.
