Bitstream pass-through audio

Hi, I just installed atv flash black on my new ATV2. Can’t get ATV2 to bitstream audio direct to my Denon Receiver (via optical cable - not HDMI - receiver doesn’t have HDMI). Is there any setting that I’m missing in order to have my Receiver lock in to the original AC3 stream (Dolby or DTS). Get this both for my .mkv files as well as for my itunes files.

Are you using Media Player? If so, the AC3 pass-through support is not currently supported, but will be in the future.

Yes, I’m using Media Player. Maybe I’ll give XBMC a try… For whatever reason can’t get pass-through audio out of legit Itunes movies either…
