I tried the turning off dolby digital and I get the Narrative track ok, 
but I still get corruption on vdpau.  It's like vertical banding, 
reminiscent of trying to copy a video with macrovision.  My pc doesn't 
display it well enough on xxmc, (I have an 8400 which should be fast 
enough with a quad core phenom, but it doesn't want to do it..)

I am using a VGA output, maybe it will work if I used a DVI one?  Maybe 
it is HDCP protection?
