[pulseaudio-discuss] 0.9.8 - Invalid value for card

I need to use the spdif port, as this computer is attached to a DTS decoder/receiver.
I've tried "device=spdif:0", "device=iec958:0", "device=surround51:0", all of which give the same error.
I don't have access to the computer right now, but I can dump the message for each of those cases.
