S/PDIF Mobo output not working. Ubuntu 10.04


I am trying to output all of my sound through the s/pdif output on my motherboard. It works fine in Windows 7, I just had to go under the sound properties and switch from the analog to the s/pdif. When I try to do the same in Ubuntu, theres nothing listed. Only "internal audio analog stereo" and "HDMI Audio" (from my graphics card) display under the output choices in Sound Preferences. Under hardware only the HDMI and Internal Analog show up as well. I tried looking at the Gnome-Alsa mixer but nothing in there either.

None of the gui is detecting the hardware, only alsamixer so far. I know many have had trouble with this in previous version but with 10.04 so new, anyone find a way to fix it?
