SBLive SPDIF on Suse8.2 using Xine 0.9.20

Hi all,

I have a suse 8.2 installation with a sblive card with a SPDIF in/out connector.
All sound are currently being played via the normal output. Not via the SPDIF output connector.

When playing movies with ac3 sound, this sound IS being outputted to the SPDIF connector. Movies without ac3 sound are being outputted to the normal stereo output connectors.

1. How do I tell xine to allways use SPDIF ??
(which output device do I need to specify in the 'device used for stereo' field of xine audio setup? I've tried specifying the device that is specified unser 'device used for 5.1-channel output', but that doesn't work and 'default' uses the analog outputs of the SBLive card.)

2. Is it possible to send all sounds to SPDIF (not only xine sounds, but all system sounds too)
