Download and install the latest Eden XBMC, the one that supports HD audio bitstreaming of course...
In the audio section enable DTS-HD, Dolby THD... etc...
I assume you have already downloaded and installed the windows plex client (also called the plex media center)
Create an xml file with the following content and name it playercorefactory.xml
save the file under c:\\users\\YOUR_HTPC_USER\\appdata\\local\\plex\\userdata
Start plex, and when you play an mkv or iso file with HD audio in it simply bitstreams the HD audio flawlessly.
I have tested this on win7 32 bit, if you're running win7 64 bit you might need to modify the paths to xbmc.exe
Also, if you use plex from within 7MC, after stopping a movie, you will only come back to the xbmc interface.
I had to map the back space button on my imon remote to the keyboard "end" key.
In other words, once I press the backspace on the remote, xbmc closes and the plex interface comes back.
I will check to see if a parameter can be passed in the xml file to automate this.
The plex experience just keeps getting better...
