Follow-up question: is there anything special required for AC3
passthrough to work? I enabled it, and my output device is ALSA:iec958.

Some channels have two tracks, one of which I'm sure is AC3. When I
switch I do hear a difference, but my receiver reports Pro Logic in all
cases, so it seems like the software decoder is being used. AC3 output 
does work from Xine off DVD though.

I'm running 0.18.1 still.

Apologies for what turned out to be user questions on -dev.
