hmm, i tried using my old sblive! as you mentioned, but didn't  have any
sucess with the regular kernel-modules. than i installed alsa and read loads
of tutorials andthe mini-howto and all i got to work was a regular 2channel
output. frustrating.

since i have to either come up with a solution tomorrow morning or cancel
using mplayer for that particular project, i'llhave to do the latter.

being able to adress multiple hollywood dxr  boardswould have been the
perfect solution, since they each have an won audio-output.

what driver are you using for your card?
