I did the patch and all it does is quickly lower/raise the
volume creating a nice fade like in winamp. None of my audio
equiptment has digital stuff so I can't test this. I don't know
why it wouldn't work? Linus may have more input.

I have never used the Digital out either, but I have a
question for you. Does the volume control on the Archos
affect the Digital out at all?

No, the volume doesn't affect the digital out level. Now that
you mention it, it might not make sense for it to fade in/out,
since it's basically a digital "line out", rather than being a sort
of "digital headphone" output.

Since the volume control doesn't affect the digital out,
there is nothing we can do, or maybe we shouldn't do
anything even if we could.

Can I close this report?

Sounds good to me...sorry I didn't think this one through
before I submitted it.
