Default 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.
