PulseAudio only opens "spdif:1" in your case, the same for output as
it would for input. If that doesn't connect you to the right device of
your card, then please ask the ALSA folks for help. While I grok the
alsa config format a bit, nI don't know it comprehensibly and wouldn't
know how to fix the definition of spdif:xxx to map to one device for a
card for input and to another for output.
