Neither did any good. In case of alse it would be using built in spdif
connecter where as I want to use DVB-C cards spdif output (I don't have
enough digital inputs and don't want to switch source unnecessarily).

Seems that this got broken in version 1.0 pre 10 of mplayer. Have to
check if there is patch or some other fix for this..
