The position_fix doesn't matter unless you get a DMA transfer problem.

Well, the question is rather how the hardware is implemented.
The SPDIF and HDMI implementation depends pretty much on the hardware.
For example, HDMI has to be activated by a video driver (e.g. X) even
for the audio transfer.
So, if the codec registers look good, I can't say more than that.
Only hardware vendors could advise...
