If you want the true digital stream (as in the best soundtrack from
ac3 and dts sources, the answer is "don't do it".

The idea of passing the digital sound through is to prevent alsa from
doing a poor job of munging it.

Use your amp, thats the way its supposed to be (luckily my remote
allows me to reprogram the vol+/- so my myth remote controls volume on
the amp.
