Can't get AC3 Passthru to work in Totem-xine

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem-xine

I'm trying to get AC3 Passthru to work in Totem-xine.

This used to work in Gutsy Gibbon, but does not in Hardy Heron.

With AC3 Passthru selected, I get analog pcm stereo output. With any other sound option, I get no sound. I can get AC3 passthru to work with "mplayer -hwac3"

I've attached the output from "lspci -vvnn" and "aadebug"

I can get AC3 signal using pulse and a52 according to

Can you provide any help?

    I think I have found the problem. Xine by default will use pulse audio, which does not support AC3 pass thru.

1. use "xine -Aalsa"
2. move /usr/lib/xine/plugins/1.20/ to /usr/lib/xine/plugins
