Depends on your sound card, if it has a S/P-DIF in connector on
the out side of its slot sheet metal and is able to handle the
S/P-DIF out of the Nexus, it should work.

You have to play with amixer to get a corredt setting to loop
through the data from the S/P-DIF in connector to the
S/P-DIF out connector.  See the mute scripts in the
mute directory for some examples.  But note: These _are_ examples
and be aware the the sound card never modifies the data
streams for AC3 (no resampling, no clipping, no washing of so what
ever kind).
