Has anyone tried the HDMI output for surround?
I know that the SPDIF output will only pipe out PCM, even from 5.1 AAC files, but I was wondering if anyone has hooked an AppleTV to a receiver and tried to get discrete surround that way. But if you are going to try, then you will need to try either some HD trailers from Apple's site(not all trailers have 5.1), or a DVD you ripped and encoded with 5.1 AAC.
If the AppleTV doesn't support surround over HDMI, then this product has many flaws.

Some of you folks with the tvs interested in the surround sound question might want to look at this article, from which the following is quoted:
(Keep in mind the following is talking about iTunes itself, not Apple tv)
...edited to add...
Here's a QuickTime 5.1 surround sound demo from Synk Audio that plays back in surround sound via a sound card with 6 discrete outs from within iTunes on my Mac... Maybe this would make a good 5.1 test file some folks with Apple TVs can try out...
