audigy2 platinum optical output question


in windows there is an option where you can set the passthrough method of the optical out to passthrough to a external decoder, basically so I can have my theater system decoded the ac3/dts signal whatever....
I have been doing a bit of research on the topic and I've come up with nothing regarding this exact issue but things that I'm not seeing in my emu10k1 config and such that I have seen others mention like maybe enabling a passthough method or enabling the live drive and remote.

So basically is there a way to have the digital sound 5.1 signal bypassed by alsa and passthrough the optical to a external decoder, or possibly kaffeine isn't compatable with such an option? I also remember that PowerDVD had to be configured to passthrough also .

all i have is this...
