Digi+ no sound

I have just got a Digi+ to use the optical out into my hifi.

Currently I am not getting any sound. I can see the red light on the optical out and see the red light at the other end of the cable.

I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B plus rev 1.3 with hifiberry os.

Output of aplay -l

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: sndrpihifiberry [snd_rpi_hifiberry_digi], device 0: HifiBerry Digi HiFi wm8804-spdif-0 [HifiBerry Digi HiFi wm8804-spdif-0]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I have tried adding dtoverlay=hifiberry-digi to config.txt however that didn't help and don't think that is required with hifiberry os?

In the web ui i noticed it has this listed

aplay 1

card 0 sndriphifiberry [snd_rpi_hifiberry_digi]

aplay 2

device 0 Hifiberry Digi HiFi wm8804-spdif-0 [HifiBerry Digi HiFi wm8804-spdif-0]


I did try using sox to do test sounds. It would show as playing with no sound coming out the hifi.

After I added dtoverlay=hifiberry-digi to config.txt sox now states there is no default sound card. Even after removing it from config.txt.

If anyone has any pointers that would be great, thanks :)
