Well I have had 2 X8 plus boxes since October and still no real fix for the enable pass through issue. So I am left on version 14.2 Vid-On version to get HD sound. I think my only alternative left is to dump these and get a different brand of box that will support this audio. But what really has me perplexed is how VidOn can get a version working for this box but Minix has failed. So I can only ascertain from the evidence is that it is not the box itself but a firmware issue. If anyone has anymore info on this issue I would appreciate the help, at this time I am wasting to much time trying different things to make it work, when you should just be able to set it and go.
