Hey guys.

Long i've been waited, but now it's on my desk; lenovo t400 with advanced mini dock. The notebook shall substitute my desktop PC completely except for gaming.

So i need the SPDIF cinch output for my receiver to watch dvd, tv and hear good music. Unfortunately there is no sound coming out of the boxes :'(

There are no checkboxes to activate the spdif via Ubuntu 9.04.

Some Specs:

In a german forum someone said something about OSSv4, could that be a solution?

Does anyone have an idea? This digital sound output is essential, otherwise i will bring the hardware back to my reseller :(

Thanks for all answers!
