That was my thread. I'm not sure if any of the arguments are optional
so you may try copying mine in its entirety. Something like:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=spdif format=s16le rate=44100
Two things, at the time I commented out "load-module
module-hal-detect" so the digital out would be the only device
available. Also, make sure your receiver can handle 44.1kHz PCM audio.
If it doesn't work try using "48000" instead.
