[mythtv-users] A tad OT: ALSA and SPDIF for via82xx - alt: choice of SPDIF cards

I didn't get an answer at the alsa user's email list nor at 
linux-audio-user, so I thought I'd post it hear. It's a bit OT since it 
is not a mythtv problem, but does apply.

I have been trying to get a via82xx on a DFI mobo to output SPDIF. (The 
reason: the analog audio on the right side is noisy.)
Anyway, I have had no luck. I brought the SPDIF pins out but I see no 
clock when checking with other hardware.

If I could get this working it would mean I won't need to search for 
another card. If anyone has experience with getting SPDIF working on a 
via82xx I'd appreciate any help. I've visited
and related links but no help so far.

Besides that: Can anyone recommend a card where SPDIF is a breeze to set 
up on alsa?
I have a Cardeluxe (which works great in Win2k) and a Delta-66 in other 
machines. I haven't revisited the drivers to see if alsa Delta-66 SPDIF 
drivers are working yet. However, I don't want to spend too much $$$ on 
this new card (It's for mythtv).

Any recommendations for a SPDIF card is much appreciated!
