I'm looking to add AC3 audio output capability to one of my MythTV FE's 
and feed the AC3 audio to my receiver.  This is the last hurdle that is 
preventing me from pulling the standalone DVD player out of my 
entertainment center (besides, I am completely tired of having to 
replace them every 6-8 months because we literally wear it out).

I realize 5.1 AC3 audio out from a Linux box is a little bit of a black 
art, but I'd like to start with a audio card that is actually supported 
under linux.  I just don't know where to start...  Ideas/Suggestions are 
more than welcome!
