I do almost the same as Nick F, but my DTS works, I think the internal myth
player cannot decode DTS so I just pass it through the receiver, as for
DTS-HD and Dolby Digital TRUE-HD, the internal mythtv splitter cannot, well,
split them, so I also convert them to non-HD (altought I keep them for the
future), I think mplayer in trunk can split and passthrough the HD formats
but I'm not sure.
