Enabling Audigy SPDIF in Windows 7

Reinstalled Windows 7 the other day and spent an hour figuring out how to enable digital audio output for my SoundBlaster Audigy Platinum. When you open the Sound properties you will see "Speakers" and "SPDIF Out" listed as playback devices. Futz with SPDIF all you want, but you won't get any audio output from digital. I finally opened the properties for "Speakers" and found the magic option under the "Custom" tab. The only option listed is a check box for "Digital Output Only". Click that box, hit apply, and enjoy digital output.
