Now that I got my RT2870 wireless-n adapter to work, I'm onto another problem. I need to output the audio from my Gigabyte K8NS-Pro mobo based PC through the S/PDIF port. I ran the "aplay" command as root and the output was this:

root@Homebrew:/home/red# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

I've seen several posts referencing a hardware tab in ALSA mixer but after I installed both it & ALSA I don't see a hardware tab. Do I need to install anything else or set any switches?

thanks!
