internal player doesn't seem to handle multichannel digital output?

Trying to play back files ripped with the built-in ripper using the internal player does not work for me. Something is wrong with the audio, my receiver cannot lock onto the digital signal, and toggles between dolby digital & dolby surround, as if the digital stream is incorect. Switching to the xine player seems to work. I tried several different rip methods, none seemed to work with the internal player, all seemed to work with xine.

Please let me know if there is more information I can gather.

Thanks, -Eric

I also have this problem, but it seems to nearly go away when I use libmpeg2 instead of XvMC. I say "nearly" because the problem still exists on at least one of my HD channels, whereas all channels are affected when XvMC is being used. Switching to Xine to view recordings fixes the problem entirely, but as far as I can tell, that is not possible for viewing live TV. At least on my MythBox?, the Internal Player seems to be incapable of using XvMC at this time.

Since this is a year old, could you just confirm that you still have the same problem with current trunk?
