    Digital Output (SPDIF) not working with HDA Intel ALC269VB

    I have a shared headphone/spdif jack on my ASUS B53J and am running Ubuntu 11.04 Natty. I am not able to get the digital spdif output to work. I have tested the spdif out under Windows 7 and it works perfectly. Any suggestions?

    Got it working!

    Open a terminal
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
    Add this to the bottom of the file
    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=auto
    REBOOT

    Under Sound Preferences > Hardware > Profile will be Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958) and selecting that option made the digital spdif output work for me.
