I've build a htpc. The mainboard is an Asus m4a785g (with build in Ati 4200).
I've installed Ubuntu 10.04 without any problems.

I want all my sound to go via spdif because my receiver doesn't have HDMI in.
The receiver is connected to the mb with a digital optical cable.

Thanks for the help!

Greetings
Sven

Thanks for the answer, but still no luck. It's not the hardware, because windows7 + mce do produce sound over spdiff (5.1 surround) and the receiver works.

In the post you mentioned, there is line that says: set PCM output to default in Alsa mixer, but i can't figure out how to that in Alsa mixer.
