I have a similar issue with the onboard audio of the M2N.

In the web admin, go to wizard --> Devices --> Media Directors.  On the media director in question, select "Manual configuration" in the dropdown for audio output, and activate AC-3 pass-through.  You will need to force reload the router at a minimum to apply this change, sometimes a reboot is needed.

With this configuration, I get AC-3 over fiber for all videos and DVDs, and I have stereo over fiber for music - but no sound at all in MythTV (live or recorded).  In some cases I am able to make the change without a reboot - in these cases I do have sound in Myth.

I have not found where the configuration is lacking, nor have I determined what the audio output "Manual configuration" setting actually does.

Hi

Cool thanks I will give that a go and let you one?
With Myth have you tried to activate AC3 in your myth setup?

Yes, I tried that switch - no change.  I don't have any AC-3 streams to play from Myth anyway.

Do you have audio in Myth over digital with it configured like that?

I expect you won't.  I do not.  There is something wrong with the way sound devices on the m2n and m3n get configured for digital out.  I haven't had the time to dive into it.
