The SPDIF can't carry 7.1 sound? It's just digital data stream. Should
be able to carry how ever many channels get encoded to the data packets.

Well, considering that I cannot find a way to get audio through hdmi with my laptop and I couldn't get much help on the alsa-users mailing list (as couldn't another folk with the same laptop 5 months ago), I am worried.

I'm waiting for a 7.1ch PCM audio over HDMI capable PCI-E graphics card.
Currently Nvidia does great job with VDPAU video but SPDIF pass-trough
limited audio is a disappointment. There is working 7.1ch PCM audio in
Linux with AMD and Intel graphics but video acceleration is not usable.

My cheap 8400GS that I bought about years ago looks still like a good
solution (plus SPDIF from mobo) :^(
