Not relevant, its is a standard i386 with dual xeon and a nvidia card.
Problem Source: Creative SoundBlaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro on (snd_emu10kx)

Problem: The soundcard i wired to a external recever trought a (Optical Link) however to even get any output of the recever i have to first load (snd_emu10k1) then unload (snd_emu10k1) and then load (snd_emu10kx) now the sound is flowing, 

Next part of the problem is that i cant get any raw signal sutch as a DTS trought the card it just comes out as a bad noise since it dossent put the card in S/PDIF
passtrought mode or i cant change it even with sysctl.

This is a serious problem, for what i have understand the orginal driver (snd_emu10kx) done by yuri works very well for a friend of mine with a exact same card, however its outdated since 2005 in ports.

If anyone whant a uname -a output i can fix it later but as i said it gives you really nothing.
kldload snd_emu10k1
kldunload snd_emu10k1
kldload snd_emu10kx
#infact to get normal output i put this in end of /etc/rc
kldload snd_emu10k1
sleep 1
kldunload snd_emu10k1
kldload snd_emu10kx
