Wow, seriously? The advice I've always seen for HTPCs is to disable
pulseaudio, but I was thinking about trying out pulse when I upgrade mine
to F14. Guess not.
To the OP, try taking pulse out of the equation by removing
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio. On my F12 HTPC, digital passthrough works on
both HDMI and optical with that setup. Places like the XBMC forums and/or
the Linux forums over at avsforum can be quite helpful for this.
