I don't know what display you are using, but my display (Panasonic V10  
plasma) doesn't seem to like to receive DD/DTS 5.1 sound.  When I  
changed myth to output stereo instead of pass-through DD/DTS it worked  
with ALSA:hdmi as the audio device from a Revo 1600.

I haven't tried the Revo output to my receiver yet.  My current  
frontend for that is a Zotac ION using plughw:0,3 with passthrough  
turned on.
