Default Nforce audio & linux

Let me start by saying im glad this forum is here, nforce support for linux is tough to come by right now (better everyday, but...)
Has anyone got the digital (coax) working in linux on their nforce board? I have an asus a7n-266C, and would LOVE to have the digital working! ive tried the nvidia driver, and the one that comes w/linux 2.4.19. Any luck anyone? thanks!!!

Very unlikely that any advanced nforce sound functions will work on linux soon.

The audio part used inside the nforce is very similar to the one used in intel's i810 chipset. The current nforce linux audio driver is therefore a little modded i810 audio driver.

To get all that dolby surround stuff and other things nvidia added a dolby surround encoder/decoder but for that no drivers exist for linux. Likely the digital audio part is related to the dolby encoder.
