Ubuntu 7.04, sound just stopped working


hello, i have ubuntu 7.04 (feisty) and i was using the optical output on my sony vaio. It's been working nicely for about a week...all of a sudden i close an mpeg file, open a dvd file (.vob), and no sound. I go back to the mpeg, and no sound there either. I am able to plug in some analog speakers and they work fine, but now my optical doesn't work. No 5.1 for dvd's now. Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Seems like ubuntu is still a few steps behind windows and the mac, but i'm setting up a mythtv box (now becoming a 6 month project). Other current issues include audio out of sync on all video files except for dvd's, any video player crashes when fast forwarding or seeking, nvidia drivers installed, but video playback is still not smooth, and the desktop screen scrolls to the right for some reason (my lcd is 1280x1024, but it seems like the screen space is set to 1800x1024, so the screen moves to the right when you mouse to the far right...no idea why)

--Thanks for the help

Check your alsamixer, see if any optical/digital settings were disabled or muted.
