Same as previous build with the following additions:

Fix for calibration not working when TV supports 3d modes.
Fix for mono playback of HSBS/HTAB videos.
Added Sam's airplay PR.

Is anyone able to confirm if this build fixes the NFS scraping problem (PR 3772)? If not will drop the patch from future builds.

I don't have a 3D TV or an iDevice so feedback on these additions also most welcome.

Using this build and a few previous others has been excellent! Speed is fine and any quirks get fixed very fast. Thanks for that.

I do have one issue and I hope someone can help me:
My Pi is connected to my TV and my TV has optical out to my Bose 3-2-1 system. (passthrough enabled with hdmi_force_hotplug=1, config_hdmi_boost=4, hdmi_force_edid_audio=1)

When I start the Pi, my Bose system reports Dolby Digital 2.0, which is fine.

If I try to start a DTS 5.1 movie, the Bose system doesn't pick up the DTS signal (because it thinks it's still DD2.0?)
If I try to start a Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC3) movie, it picks up fine and plays great. When I stop that movie the Bose system drops to PCM 2.0.

When I start a DTS movie from PCM mode, the DTS plays fine.
So to sum up:

DD2.0 -> DD5.1 = OK
DD2.0 -> DTS5.1 = Not OK
DD2.0 -> PCM = Never seen it happen
PCM -> DD2.0 = OK
PCM -> DD5.1= OK
PCM -> DTS5.1 = OK
DD5.1 -> PCM = OK
DD5.1 -> DD2.0 = OK
DD5.1 -> DTS = OK
DTS -> DD5.1 = OK
DTS -> DD2.0 = Never seen it happen

The "Keep the audio device alive option" is off, as it forces my system into DD2.0.

This is but a small problem for normal watching as I just need to play anything in DD5.1 and stop it to make it go into PCM, after that I can play anything. I can live with that.

The real problem is 3D movies. In the newer builds, XBMC asks which 3D format to use and during that choice screen it drops back to DD2.0, after which I have not DTS to go back to.
Is there a way to disable that choice screen so I can play my 3D DTS movies again or can somebody help me look at the audio problem and make it initialize properly?

Please tell me which log to send and thanks in advance.
