AC3 5.1 surround sound without passthrough, simultaneous output to both SPDIF and HDMI

Using XBMC Eden on Ubuntu 12.04 (precise pangolin) has been a very positive experience so far, including Live TV. Except for the TV remote (to turn the screen on and off), there's only one controller left that we use - the one for the Linux box running XBMC. Previously we needed another one for the audio receiver, as XBMC wasn't able to adjust the volume of passthrough sound, but that's no longer the case.
