I'd just like to confirm that I got the Asus P5E-VM HDMI G35 board, and that
things are indeed working fine.
I do AC3 via SPDIF passthrough and it worked the first time.
The only hitches are with the intel driver that offers a slow textured xv
visual by default and needs to be overridden to use its overlay visual
Make sure mythfrontend -v playback gives you:

2008-09-28 09:29:24.334 VideoOutputXv: XVideo Adaptor Name: 'Intel(R) Video Overlay'
I also got the LCD in the Antec Fusion Black 430 HTPC case working fine
(except for the included IR sensor that won't read codes from other remotes,
just from the windows MCE remote :(
Hope this helps others, and thanks again Jo.
