Everything is running into my AV Receiver, that's where my volume is
controlled.  I uncheck the box for internal volume controls.  There
was a post to the list a while back on how to send everything out over
the spdif, and have your receiver decide if it's AC3 or PCM, the key
was in the .asoundrc.  I can't find it off hand, but a bit of a search
will probably turn it up, it was probably in the last 2 weeks.
