I have 5.3.0b1 and the associated firmware... and I just got a new surround
receiver (Rotel RSX 1056). I haven't used the digital outs previously...
but now (using the coaxial) my receiver has to re-lock on the signal every
time I pick a new song or pause/play a song (via the slim remote). The
receiver can decode all sorts of digital formats--but it's silent while it
figures it out upon starting the SB (about 1-2 seconds). I have set the
default to PCM 2-channel... but there's still something funky--like the SB
stops sending any signal then starts up again.

Is this issue the same as others have had with earlier firmware (and DACs)?
