Should this work in iTunes with movies purchased from iTunes using an apple approved iwires minidisplayport to hdmi adapter? or do I have to use an optical lead? As I am using a 2011 macbook pro with thunderbolt (post 2008) I presumed passthrough should work fine; the hdmi lead is connected to a Denon AV Receiver. I can clearly see the surround option when I start playing the video back but when I select it iTunes hangs. In Audio Midi Setup Utility I have the choice of 8ch, 2ch and encoded audio. Interestingly I cannot get encoded audio to work and whenever it is selected the sound output defaults to the Built-in device. I have uninstalled perian incase this was affecting anything but no change
