Well, according to lspci, I've got revision 5. But I guess you're
referring to the name that the SB marketers have chosen. It's just a
plain vanilla SB Live with a digital-out daughter card. I got it way back
before all the Platinum and Gamer lines came out -- all they had was the
regular Live! and the Live! Value. The only difference was that the Value
didn't have the digital I/O.
I too have tried xine. I can play back .vob files with AC3 just fine.
DVD playback is problematic, though. The first few seconds are beautiful,
but after that, the system just hangs and I have to hit the reset button.
(Can't even ssh in to kick the box. I suspect it's a xine plugin problem
or something -- non-AC3 playback works fine.)
