Well, this may not work, but it's worth a try. Sometimes you end up
trying stuff piecemeal and think you've tried everything but you
really have to do all of it together to make it work...

Copy the config file from the digital sound wiki verbatim and save it
as /etc/asound.conf (Might as well make it system wide).
use aplay -l to verify which device is iec958. For instance, on my
nForce3 FE/BE (and nForce4 desktop) MB it is card 0, device 2 instead
of card 0, device 1.
Make sure the mixed-digital entry in asound.conf is set to the correct
Go into the mythmusic settings and set the audio output to ALSA:mixed-digital.

Let me know what happens...
