Fixed my own problem.
I was reading about firewire ports, and it turns out any motherboard integrated firewire port is probably sub par as it has to compete on the southbridge. Plugged in an old sound card with a firewire port and spdif signal immediately synced and worked with no other changes.

Good to hear Ben, glad you posted the result too. If you hunt around there are a few Mboards that don'tuse the same architecture through the southbridge. Not as many Firewire cards as there used to be but some of those devices had preamps and A/D converters too good to give up on yet...
