Setting OS X DVD Player to Output Digital Audio (vs PCM) to AVR/HDTV
Question from a reader mail this weekend, but my reply bounced, so I posted it here (audio/HT page) - including notes about poor sound quality from OS X DVD Player when using PCM (vs Digital Audio/Bitstreaming). (Beth, If you need more help write me again from an addy I can reply to but I think this info will solve your DVD audio problem.)
