[mythtv-users] spdif output and subwoofer

I am not getting any sub woofer channel from the spdif output.  I have 
my audio output device set to ALSA:spidif and mixer set to default.  I 
have no .asoundrc file.  I'm using an HD-5500 tuner.  I see the HD 5.1 
logo on the shows I'm recording but have never heard any output from the 
sub woofer.  Also myths volume control is not working.
   When I play a DVD with xine the sub works fine and xine can also 
control the volume - also using the spidif output.
   So, question is - is there supposed to be sub woofer output with off 
air HDTV programming and if not is there a way to simulate it?
Thanks much!

Oh yeah I'm using Myth 2.0
