Unfortunately no. You can't switch audio devices on the fly, it would
require that you exit playback and start it again

You can now switch between digital audio and analog/pcm using two
different device

And myth doesn't support outputting to two devices at the same time
(like hdmi + spdif) ; I have thought about doing something toward this
; but properly handling A/V Sync becomes tricky
