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.
