Can't say. I'm not sure what the driver sees at the hardware
interface to the various cards but I do know that the track
change information is just status info in the normal S/PDIF data
frames so even if it is detectable (or writeable) it would
require a separately open channel with the driver that operates
synchronously with the data channel. No drivers currently
support this even if it is available at the card.
I'm not sure if the SCMS info is like this or if it comes framed
"Things should be described as simply as possible, but no simpler."
