You don't have to use Scan Device ; but it's strongly recommended so
you're guaranteed to see during the settings what you're going to
experience during playback.

If you don't you can set everything manually, but you could be doing
something that makes no sense.

If you entered ALSA:iec958 manually, configure it like you used to ;
it will work. Just not using any automatic settings.

I still would like your backtrace though... So this problem gets fixed
or at least we know what causes it.
