I don't have a HD setup, but AC3 is working through my spdif connection to
my receiver. This may not help, but here's what I have:
My MythTV audio settings:
Audio output device = /dev/dsp
enable ac3 to spdif passthrough = unchecked
mixer vontrols = pcm
[mythtv at localhost ~]$ cat /home/mythtv/.asoundrc
Also, I use Xine for MythVideo instead of mplayer. Here is what I use to
xine --fullscreen --hide-gui --auto-play --no-logo --no-splash --deinterlace
