Last night I installed ffmpeg from a GIT pull (SVN is no longer used). I still don't see anything in ffplay that suggests bitstreaming audio.
$ ffplay -bsfs

I don't know about ffmpeg, but it looks like you can do audio bistreaming via aplay.

It looks like you need a 2.6.36 kernel, or to patch the one you have.

For ffmpeg, you may have to patch that:

I may have found something HERE:

Hi all!

Here is a patchset implementing TrueHD, DTS-HD, and E-AC3 support in our
IEC 61937 muxer, allowing HDMI passthrough of those formats. The E-AC3
and TrueHD ones are partially based on the earlier work of Carl Eugen
Hoyos and myself, while I only just got DTS-HD working.

I don't see that muxer listed as a configure option in my latest ffmpeg source:
~/ffmpeg$ ./configure --list-muxers

Maybe it still needs to be patched first.
