Okay, I follow you now.

Which sounds like I'm rather clueless, and I am.

What I have is an external USB audio device. A Sound Blaster:

It converts whatever it gets from the USB cable into a signal that it 
then passes on to my amplifier.

On the device itself, it has a switch so I can select digital or analog

amplifier's auxillary input.

With that set up in mind, I don't know if from MythTV's perspective my 
output is digital or not.

In any case, I tried all the selections you suggested, and I'm still not 
getting sound. At least not within MythTV.
