In their handbook, motherboard intel DP35DP and others with STAC927x (in
the codec datasheet also ADAT output is featured on older sigmatel
STAC9271 and now IDT STAC9274 only) advertise ADAT output possible on
their toslink.
DP35DP and other intel boards are proven to have the ADAT output working
under windows.
Is it working in Alsa ? Many HTPC users would love that... I would !

Anybody from intel or IDT/sigmatel to confirm (by checking the sigmatel
STAC927x hda codec driver) that it will work ?
I want these intel motherboards only for this ADAT output feature and I
am a linux only user so I would like to know before buying...
I want to be sure someone would make the necessary changes to the hda
sigmatel codec alsa driver so it would work.
Thank you everybody
