I've done it.  I have digital passthru from MythTV via coax SPDIF.

MSI K9NGM2-FID Socket AM2 GeForce 6150.
Fedora Core 5, Linux kernel 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5smp.

Here's what made the difference: I downloaded and installed ALSA 1.0.13 from

I had been testing with mplayer, to get it to pass AC3 from DVD to SPDIF,
and even after the new ALSA version, it still didn't.  But I tried
mythfrontend anyway - and it worked!

And with that, I'm happy enough.  For now.
