I remember spending multiple nights trying to get spdif working on a intel
mac mini and never getting it fully work/stable.  It seems to be working
for me nearly out of the box on ubuntu 12.04.  I had to uninstall
pulseaudio for it to work though (sudo apt-get autoremove pulseaudio) and

(from the mythfrontend 0.25/fixes)
Setup -> Audio
Audio output device: ALSA:plughw:CARD=Intel,DEV=1
Digital Audio Capabilities: Check Dolby Digital, Check DTS
