[mythtv-users] AAC Audio Won't Play

I've discovered that after my recent upgrade from CentOS 4.6 to 5.2 along with 
all current ATRPMS packages, my AAC audio support no longer works. Using the 
MythTV internal player I get:

AFD Error: Could not find decoder for codec (AAC), ignoring.

mplayer also refuses to play AAC audio. I think I have the right packages 

$ rpm -qa |egrep "aac|aad"

The ATRPMS MythTV packages are based on SVN Fixes 19114:

$ rpm -q --changelog mythtv-frontend
* Mon Nov 17 2008 Axel Thimm <Axel.Thimm at ATrpms.net> - 0.21-194
- Update to latest svn fixes (19114).

I've search the archives here and have seen various AAC problems but no clear 
solution to my problem.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
