Default ac3 passthrough with xine


I have a shuttle machine with an nForce2 motherboard running Fedora Core 1. I've finally gotten alsa to send all standard sound (even oss emulation) through spdif to my receiver. However, I cannot get ac3 passthrough working. I can get stereo sound for dvds in xine without a problem, but as soon as I enable the a52_passthrough option, I get no sound from dvds. It seems as though it's trying to do something, because I often get a "pop" from the speakers when it starts playing the sounds, but after that I get no sound output. (If I uncheck a52_passthrough, sound works ok, but it's not surround)

Does anyone have any idea how to get this working? (I can post whatever config files might be useful after I get home from work)
