You'll get E-AC-3 and DTS-HD under 6.144Mbps on those cards, though (my post at XBMC forum), but not TrueHD or full DTS-HD MA.

Indeed, an official list would be appreciated. I can understand NVIDIA's need to be careful, though, as it wouldn't be very good to have people buying hardware based on wrong info in some list...

As far as I know, ION2 has the same issues as GeForce 200 series, i.e. it works with some receivers but not all. GT430 should work fine, though. I believe it is likely that other GeForce 400 series GPUs also work on all receivers.
