Since you are talking about the s/pdif input, the fix is easy.  Just
set your STB to output bitstream instead of PCM.  If the HD-PVR is fed
AC3, then AC3 is always muxed in, regardless of the audio encoding

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
