There's a lot of paranoia about PulseAudio about, but it just worked for me
with FC8. Getting simultaneous stereo analogue and raw DD/dts bitstream was
harder - details at

One thing I have noticed is that sometimes, the dts bitstream to my amp will
drop out when, if I remember correctly, when there's lots going on in the
video stream (e.g. cutscenes, fast pans). I think I read that's a MythTV
issue, though.
