Did firefox start when you did "Information Center" -> "www" ?  I did 
exactly what you did and it would not start firefox from within the 
"www" menu.  Perhaps I missed something.

I think what you are saying is that I need to configure alsa default 
device to output to spdif so that even without passthrough, I get 
spdif.  This is a subset of what is in the alsa wiki in the section for 
multi.  However, as far as I can tell that documentation doesn't work.  
I have not seen anyone say it works and I have seen many say they could 
not get it to work.  I got spdif working fine with passthrough, but not 
through alsa itself.  That works fine for MythTV but firefox doesn't 
seem to support passthrough.  If you know some documentation that works 
I would love to know about it.
