First of all, check you alsa.conf (slocate alsa.conf) to see if it
already has a spdif device listed, mine does. Try:
cat /location/of/your/alsa.conf | grep spdif
Mine says that...
...is available, so to use aplay as an example, this would mean
something like these:
aplay -D spdif mysound.wav
aplay -Dplug:spdif mysound.wav
Frankly, I'm not sure which one is right or how ecasound does this.
The ecasound docs and examples are a great place to start. There is
also someone who has apparenetly dealt wtih your exact problem (OK,
slightly different card) right here:
And at the bottom I have posted my own /etc/asound.conf for my Delta
1010. Channels are accessed for recording or playback by their pcm
name (Ex. arecord -D ice1712_spdif myfile.wav) once they are set up.
I hope this helps.
