Many other posters have replied but I want to throw in another thought: Via
auxillary bits in the spdif stream other information than the mere audio can
be transmitted to. My memory might fool me here, but I think that even time
codes can be transmitted. Maybe your mixer searches for such information.
Mixer consoles often have toslink inputs and not spdif. Toslink works
slightly different than spdif: it uses higher levels / symmetrical signal
lines. Very often it works nevertheless to feed a toslink input with a spdif
output.
