What I want to do:

Take the optical/IEC958 input from a PS3 feed it into my soundcard (which DOES have optical in) and then output in 5.1 via the 3x3.5mm outputs.

The 3.5mm outputs work fine, but I can't seem to get sound from the optical in - how do I go about this? I tired the windows way of unmuting the input but I can't find the optical input...

aplay -l :

I'm using Mythbuntu but that shouldn't make any difference?

Can anyone point me in the right direction or am I asking the impossible? :(
