Centos Optical SPDIF

I'm having a heck of a time with this.

I have an Asus M3N78 PRO and I'm trying to output sound to optical SPDIF. This motherboard only has a the RCA out so I added on the optical card and it lights the fiber.

If I issue "speaker-test -c2 -twav -Dplughw:0,3" I get output through my TV.

But "speaker-test -c2 -twav -Dplughw:0,1" does not error, but no sound.

I am changing inputs on my receiver and have the defaults in the bios:)

Where should I go to troubleshoot this more? I've been googling for 2 days with no luck.

Re: Centos Optical SPDIF
I plugged in using the copper SPDIF (which is on-board), and it doesn't work either.

Here is some more info:

Re: Centos Optical SPDIF
Considering this is a nvidia graphics card forum, this is probably not the place. Just go to the #alsa irc channel on freenode.net. The people there are really good. But keep in mind that what they can do may be limited since most of the software in centos is ancient. Alsa looks relatively up-to-date (which is surprising for centos), but that kernel is three years old.
