Blu-ray and AC3Filter

I heard that the version of PowerDVD 8 that comes with most BD readers for a PC is restricted to stereo playback. Can AC3Filter be used to get full 5.1 surround sound?

I don't think you can 'make' PowerDVD use AC3Filter or anything like that.

If you use Windows 7 + ffdshow beta7, you should be able to do play back on ripped 'STREAM' folders.

Can you bitstream via HDMI or Optical ??

I use the audio out jacks from the on-board Realtek ALC850, 8-ch High-Definition Audio CODEC to drive my Logitech Z-5300 5.1 speakers. There is no possibility of using SPDIF or HDMI.
