The SPDIF input actually works.  The problem is that it isn't possible
to do capture with that mixer control muted, becuase muting the control
also turns off capture.  See my post about a month ago for more
information about this issue.  For some applications this bug may not
matter much, but it makes the X-Fi Titanium unusable for real-time audio
processing applications.
