[mythtv-users] Digital Audio and TimeStretch

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I'm relatively new here. Does anyone know
if it's possible to use time streching (faster) and still use AC3 digital audio?  As it is right now,
depending on what I watch, I will Enable or Disable AC3 to SPDIF Passthrough, since some
shows I want to speed through, and others I want to enjoy.  When I try to time stretch
with this enabled, the audio is crackly and virtually inaudible. 

If it's technically impossible to speed-up digital audio, it may be a nice future feature
if, when timestretching your playback, the audio could automatically revert to plain old stereo.
