    Cant get optical sound with my Zotac f ION

    Hi, i have been using ubuntu for almost a year and i have tried everything to get sound through my optical output. I have 5.1 through my HDMI but i want 5.1 through my Optical output so i cant get DTS from movies while playing it from XBMC.

    i am using ubuntu 11.04 and here are my outputs

    aplay -l
    Code:
