Sorry, missed that tread last week. Had a tread on this on the dev list 
3 weeks ago (title was "pre-buffer audio related")

Anyway, you can just use ALSA:spdif or ALSA:front as audio device 
(instead of /dev/dsp) . No .asoundrc needed.
Your mixer device should be set to default (instead of /dev/mixer)

You're best of using current CVS version as a lot of ALSA fixes where 
checked in last week.
Also make sure to enable alsa support in your settings.pro file.

A better solution would be trying to fix the atiixp driver (or the OSS 
emulation) with the ALSA people but haven't had time to look into this...
