OK thanks for that - it makes sense. Now to a more basic question. Is 
the S/PDIF ouput on the 1010 functional with the current Linux driver? 
Under Windoze I can get output from it. But not a trace with the Linux 
driver. Sticking a 'scope on the output shows no nice digital data at all.

I've twiddled all the settings in envy24control, alsamixer and so on. I 
have nice levels showing in envy24control but no digits coming out of 
the RCA jack. It is set to 44.1 internal clock,

Is there some simple test I can do like cat'ing a file to a device to 
see if I can get a noise to come out?

I'd really appreciate a pointer here as I'm a bit stuck and I'd rather 
use the digital output if I possibly can. I bet there is some secret 
incantation I have missed. The digital output on the AC97 sound card on 
the MB is working.
