spdif output from integrated realtek alc850 not working

I'm trying to get sound from Ubuntu 10.04 out thru the integrated realtek alc850 chipset to my home theatre via the spdif port. I installed the drivers from realtek but still no sound. Under Places-Preferences-Sound, only the IEC958 shows up. What else should I do? Neither Rhythmbox nor Alsa show the Realtec spdif.
Thank you.
