I am getting frustrated now. I have a big noisy backend in my living
room because it is the only thing I can watch recorded shows on. I built
a frontend using the MSI 865. I just got one of two things working
tonight that I needed before I can move the backend and start using the
frontend. I was tired of waiting for interlace with NVidia so I bought a
cheap SIS 315 card and had 1920x1080i working in about 10 minutes. Now
all I need is SPDIF to work. I can use mplayer and -ao alsa1x:spdif and
it works great. Myth still does not work with SPDIF. I just get audio
out the headset. My question is, is anyone really looking into this or
should I get another Audigy card that I know works with SPDIF. The
frontend is running the latest CVS and uses an Intel 8x0 chipset for
audio. The ALSA:spdif is no longer giving me floating point errors, it
just says, Unable to playback audio, Continue anyway?
