After a lot of tries I have mange to get working AC3 out on my TOS link (optical SPDIF) with mplayer.

The command used for player is:

mplayer -ao alsa:device=hw=0,2 -ac hwac3 dvd:// (my optical output is device 2 on card 0)

LinuxMCE (MD) is silent when playing video. playing mp3 (from media->audio) works.

By changing my asound.conf file to this :

pcm.!default {
        type hw
        card 0
        device 2
}

ctl.!default {
      type hw
      card 0
      device 2
}

Even aplay uses the optical output.

Running the avwizard, I can hear the regular stereo signal, but fail to hear DTS or AC3 sounds (and answer no to those questions)

I am unable to change the volum, but that is ok - I can easily change volum on my amp.

How can I configure xine on the MD to use the  alsa:hw2 port in passthrough mode ?

I have noticed that linuxMC overwrites my asound.conf file. How can I prevent this once I've got a working on ?

I have had success going to a terminal and running alsamixer and turning up all of the outputs to get something. You may need to run alsaconfig from a terminal (if its still in there).
