I don't recall seeing the DTS indicator on, which is why I believe that is
the case.  But the receiver is taking an optical input from the mythbox, and
I get sound coming from all speakers, but I would just rather make sure the
receiver is doing the decoding.

Do you know of a command line option to just send straight dts data to the
receiver.  I don't care if it uses mplayer, aplay, xine, vlc or a flying
chicken.  I just want to test out to make sure my .asoundrc is set up
