[mythtv-users] SPDIF surround broken in trunk

...at least for me. Ever since I did an "svn up" last weekend, surround
sound no longer works for me. I also updated to 25327 yesterday; same

This is the card I have:

01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788
[Oxygen HD Audio]

It has analog individual speaker surround outputs, but I am using SPDIF
passthrough to my amp. 

What happens is that SPDIF works, but it's stereo only. If I go into
Setup -> General and go to the audio page, then scan for audio devices,
the only device that comes up that has SPDIF output listed only supports
2.0. The analog surround outputs are found and are said to support 5.1,
but I don't know if they would work because I have nothing connected to
them, but SPDIF is now stereo only.

Is anybody else seeing this?
