I have a dfi sli-dr board with on-board coax and optical outputs. I want to use the spdif coax to output to my receiver. After my inital setup, with no extra setup on my part, the coax output works great from within LMCE (mp3's, video files)...but I get no sound when it plays DVD's. I also get no sound from the coax output with the normal linux programs (non-mce stuff). After many searches for this topic the problem sees to be with linux not having an option to correctly select the coax output, while somehow LMCE was able to in the setup. I have seen many people talk about fixes for this that go way over my head. I'm a linux noob and would love a lil help here. A lot of people mention various edits to two audio configuration files that my kubuntu versions don't seem to have.
So basically...sound card works...coax out works inside LMCE...how can i get it to work in linux (outside of MCE)?
Thanks to anyone that can help...lil bit lost...and more and more furstrated...thanks
