Perhaps I'm going about this the wrong way (if so, please tell me), but...
My X-Fi card is now working with the new driver. I am connected to my
amplifier via a fiber optic cable. Sending standard two-channel audio
to the "front" alsa plug gets directed to the spdif output and sounds
great. But I want to have my full surround active - particularly for
movies already encoded with dts and/or ac-3.
Do I need to specially configure ALSA is any fashion to make this work? Do I need to use the iecset tool?
I'm using Kubuntu Karmic, running a 2.6.31 kernel, if that makes any difference.
