How do I get Fedora to us the digital output of my Turtle Beach Riviera Sound Card

The drivers were automatically installed when I switched my card, but currently I get no digital output. I admit I have not played with it as much I should have by now. Fedora detects it as
Vendor C-Media Electronics
Model CM8738
Module snd-cmipci

Any thoughts?

I discovered how to do this in Fedora Core 3, and since it uses the same driver as Fedora Core 1, this should still apply. Open volume control, and unmute "IEC958 Output". About a second later, the optical connection comes to life. It should be noted that you can't adjust the volume of the optical connection-all you can do is mute it.
