Before I try this, one quick question:

Does this allow you to enable the pass-through options in MythTV and it all 
still work?
ie. Can your surround system receive, say, a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal and the 
analog speakers still work.

I'd love this to work, so that we have a choice of DVD audio output depending 
on whose watching (I like to use the AMP when I can), my kids really don't 
care and are quite happy with the TV output. 

Its probably the one thing stopping me taking the DVD player out of the TV 
cabinate and replacing it with my Myth Box (currently standing upright on the 
floor). I'd even accept the requirement of a button press to switch output 
(providing the current place isn't lost) - but for the life of me can't work 
out, or really understand what any .asoundrc configuration really means.
