Yeah, but i810_audio is not the issue, nvaudio is. The reason I need NVaudio is so I can play games like Quake3 and Urban Terror without experiencing audio problems. Currently, I can not play these games fully using the i810_audio or alsa drivers.
According to the readme file, this is a known issue and is fixed in nvaudio when passed the spdif_status=0 parameter to the module to turn off spdif output. However, when I use nvaudio, I get immediate seg fault. *Aparently* this is supposed to be fixed, but isn't. I have sent an email to the linux bugs email address and received no reply.
