Volume control within Myth when using digital sound should work with any 
soundcard as long as Myth is not doing a "passthrough."  I.e. if the 
channel does not contain an AC3 stream, volume control should work.

That being said, doing "software" volume control with digital sound is 
the wrong solution, anyway.  You should use the A/V receiver to which 
you're sending the digital sound to do the volume control.
