Enable digital output for digital speakers?
I've looked around everywhere... but i just can't get my speakers to work.
When i plug my headphones into the audio out jack, it works FINE.
But my speakers don't work.
I have Altec Lansing ADA885 Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Speakers. I have an nForce2 board (Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe) and i am using the on-board sound.
For the headphone/output jack, i'm obviously getting analog out which my speakers don't seem to be able to read. What is the way to get this to output digital instead (i'm using ubuntu, so i guess any debian-like users will know). Of course i'm using alsa and all that junk. My distro successfully detects and installs the on-board sounds and identifies it as "nForce MultiMedia audio [Via VT82C686B]" and "nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP)".
And if i get this working... it would be even better... would be if someone told me how i can get that special digital S/PDIF out to work on the back of my computer. I'd like to enable this if possible.
If anyone can help me... I have a fresh install and didn't mess with anything yet.... so i'm ready for taking any immediate action without any pre-tampering.
