[mythtv-users] Can't mute, can't change 6cg AC3 volume, audio volume shift on play

Stuff that works:
Video playback (recorded, live, mythvideo, etc)
Multichannel audio playback

Stuff that is annoying:
Can't mute and actually get 0 audio output, and can't set volume
slider to 0 and get no audio
When playing or unpausing mythtv's internal player, the volume starts
very low and then goes to normal after a split second. This is also
very annoying when paused in the middle of dialog.

Stuff that's thoroughly broken:
5.1 AC3 playback on DVD's or DVD rips - the volume control doesn't do
squat. Minimum volume is exactly the same as maximum volume, and I
have to get up and us the darned speaker knob to change the volume -
which means I have to get up again and unchange it when my video is
done playing, or whenever I just want to change the volume ( which is
very often ).

My playback hardware:
NVIDIA MCP-T (soundstorm) using analog speakers plugged into the
straight up analog ports on the back of an NF7-S.

I would appreciate any input on these issues...
