Below is their response.
I get tired of people in customer service not answering clear and concise questions.
Even now, I don't know what the answer is.
I just bought another WD media player.
Maybe kdlinks is good but frankly I don't want to try and figure it out, I will just deal with the WD for now. Its user interface is excellent!
Eric: Sorry, we don't have device to test that. According to customers feedback, AV + HDMI works.
Do you want to connect it to 2 different audio devices, 1 through HDMI and 1 through SPDIF? HDMI is much better than this SPDIF.

I know that red/white would work - that works in EVERY device.
What I am interested is knowing if it is possible to simultaneously output dolby digital 5.1 audio via HDMI.
Can you find an answer?
You can go through the menus, if you have the device.
I don't want to buy and return the unit, to verify
