I can go in and out of xine, myth, HD recordings, standard-def recordings, 
files with 2-channel stereo only, reboot, etc., etc., never have to touch a 
thing on the sound config. :-)

Not very, I believe. I've heard of at least on SBLive user using my 
Audigy .asoundrc successfully. Really, the files aren't that different for 
*any* sound card with similar features (i.e., digital output), you just need 
to change a parameter or two here and there to match where certain things 
are. I based all my stuff off Mike Dean's work, which you can read here:


He goes over how to set up pretty much everything, and the .asoundrc file is 
pretty well commented.
