Ok, first thing to try is to make sure you can see the s/pdif inout with
alsa. audacity or arecord should be able to record audio (audacity
provides metering which may make things easier). alsamixer does not show
capture ports it shows volume controls or switches. Often you would have 3
or 4 inputs that are switched/mixed to give one stereo input. So making
sure your s/pdif channel is on/unmuted/turned up is the first step. You
may wish to mute Line and Mic while playing with it. You probably (from
what you have said) have:

Mic-------------\
\
Line----------| Mixer |------PCM------>ALSA-->Jack
/
S/PDIF----------/

Each line here would be a stereo path (two Channels).

In other words I think you will find there are only two input channels to
ALSA.

Assuming this is the device notice this doesn't shows number of channels.

Or this... but they don't on my 4channel+spdif card either.

Try arecord -L
(Capital L)

It still doesn't show number of outputs directly but rather choices, There
it lists stereo as:
front:CARD=M66,DEV=0
M Audio Delta 66, ICE1712 multi
Front speakers
and spdif as:
iec958:CARD=M66,DEV=0
M Audio Delta 66, ICE1712 multi
IEC958 (S/PDIF) Digital Audio Output
To use my 4 analog inputs I would use:
surround40:CARD=M66,DEV=0
M Audio Delta 66, ICE1712 multi
4.0 Surround output to Front and Rear speakers
This one here _might_ be my analog inputs plus spdif:
surround51:CARD=M66,DEV=0
M Audio Delta 66, ICE1712 multi
5.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
I say might be because jack actually show 12 inputs:
1-4 are analog
5-8 are not used but defined for the ice1712
9-10 spdif
11-12 monitor mixer output
So the last two inputs in 5.1 might actually be the dead inputs 5-6
