Anyone have hard confirmation as to whether or not an Intel HD Audio (http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/hdaudio.htm) chipset is in AppleTV?

I'm particularly interested in whether or not it has the built-in ability to transcode multichannel AAC to AC-3 on the fly... which would answer many questions about future support of discrete multichannel surround (pending the distribution of such files from iTunes Music Store).
