Looking for some help with AC3/DTS passthrough

Specifically, I’m looking for someone with a surround receiver hooked up to run this binary and send me the console output (specifically, the stuff about “Asked to create device…”, “Considering…”, and “Picked…”). I’m trying to figure out why I’m apparently the only one able to do AC3/DTS passthrough.

Please note that there is nothing new about this new binary besides some extra debugging output. It does not work on the Mac Mini. It does not provide a workable solution for solving world hunger.

Thanks in advance for the help.
