Don't know whether this is a Pandora or Boxee issue...my audio is stereo instead of Dolby surround sound. Questions:
1. Is Pandora audio 5.1 in their non-subscription service? Is it only available in Pandora One (subscription service)?
2. Assuming 5.1 is available are people able to get 5.1 audio as a SPDIF passthrough via an HDMI 1.3 cable?
I have a Samsung TV connected to the AV receiver with HDMI cable and my PC (where Boxee resides) is connected to the AV receiver via an HDMI cable. My PC is a Dell XPS 1530M laptop where 5.1 audio is routed as a passthrough on the HDMI cable. I can play HD video on this laptop using a VLC player and get 5.1 audio out of my external speakers.
