The MythTV speaker test uses multi channel PCM, so may not work 
correctly if your setup does not support that. I think there is some 
circumstance where the MythTV speaker test uses Dolby, perhaps when you 
select the stereo only PCM option.

You say your new receiver supports multi-channel PCM, but perhaps some 
other component (e.g. your video card) does not support it?
