phofman- that's interesting, do i take it from that that the drivers are simply not available and short of coding one myself I'm limited to SPDIF? I think drivers may be a bit beyond my skill level!
I'm quite keen on using the HDMI out as I have a receiver that can take it. If I were set on that HDMI out, would it be foolish to use, say, ASIO and WINE, as I've heard others have, or even ASIO and Windows until such time as a cleverer chap makes a suitable driver? If not, no problem really, I'll just stick to SPDIF until either I or another can get a driver working
Forgive me, drivers and Linux-modding really aren't my forte at the mo, tho I hope to change that. Thanks again for all your expertise and patience

Adding HDMI support is not about your coding skills. The driver comes from one of the alsa gurus and if he says http://www.spinics.net/linux/fedora/.../msg07842.html it can basically only mean he was not provided with sufficient information from Asus/someone producing the card to enable the HDMI output. I bet if Clemens had the information he would have already added HDMI support to the driver.

HDMI is close to DRM and manufacturers have to follow strict rules about spreading sensitive information.
