hi tom,

it should be possible to change the input-connection with alsamixer: via
the input connection switch, from coaxial to optical.

As I said in my original message, I have done that, but it doesn't help to figure out how to get the 8x8 input to work.

Martin,

Sorry you got this twice - I haven't used gmail to send mail to a list before, and assumed it would do the Right Thing when replying.
