> Playback is now working with the audio configured as 5.1 passthru (i.e. the hanging/buffering errors are now gone), however I was wondering if you managed to get sound output from my sample DVD during the studio title?  I'm getting no audio during this title when configured for 5.1, but I do in a stereo config.  The logs seem to indicate that the audio is being sent as non-audio data (i.e. passthru), so this suggests that my receiver isn't decoding it correctly.  I'd just like to confirm that it all works for you.

Haven't tried with a real digital receiver, but on my VM, configured
for digital audio (AC3 and DTS passthrough are checked), I do hear the
noise emitted by digital passthrough. It sounds like passthrough to me
Will try on a real machine later today
