Finally decided to switch to Linux for good or bad on my main computer. I'm using Xubuntu 11.10.

So everything works except my sound. I'm using an ASUS M4A785-M board and trying to get the integrated VIA optical out to work.

Here's alsamixer:


SPDIF appears disabled. Now then, I was using this board for a HTPC before and the optical out worked in XBMC on a different version of alsa and only required going into the terminal and unmuting the SPDIF. Obviously this method isn't working here. I have done some searches for a solution but the only two main help pages I found were way over my head.
