with Fedora10 stereo audio plays ok via the HDMI connection, I use it
at 1080p so mythtv is upscaling PAL fro 720x576i

If I enable 5.1 passthrough then the TV doesn't recognise the sound
channels, even when only playing stereo, so in fact I use the normal
stereo 3.5mm lineout for watching normal TV (advantage is that the
volume mixer works which it can't do in S/PDIF) and coax S/SPDIF for
watching DVDs (5.1 passthrough works nicely)

Don't know if you'll run into the same problem with IEC958_2 outputs
over HDMI on other motherboards too

> It should be also considered to play HD movies nicely

I've only played a few 720p and 1080i samples
