OK. I'm not bothered about the details of AC3 too much. Just another question:

PowerDVD has various audio output options: 2spk/4spkr/6 and SPDIF. I presume choosing the SPDIF out mneans you can have other hardware decode the audio stream from the disc (namely using my 5.1 digital amplifier).

Strange thing is that with my Dad's GF's sound card isntalled, I get a different picture in the control panel showing the appropriate connectors but the SPDIF is greyed out (so it's using the right card, not the onboard one). There is no passthrough option like there is with that card in Windows 98 on her machine.
