I have only been using XBMC for a year myself.
AFAIK Pre Eden is any nightly version of Eden before the beta's. You are probably using Eden 11 Beta 1 not Eden 11.1.
I imagine they will have a few betas before a full release of Eden 11. If something is missed or needs changing after the full release you might see a Eden 11.1.
Eden 11 Beta 2 runs a lot better than Beta 1 imo. My i3 build hasn't had any problems at all.
AudioEngine is a complete reworking of the audio part of XBMC (music, video soundtracks GUI sounds, everything). The build of pre Eden that many are using to get HD audio was created June/July last year which is 6 months old. Eden has changed since then and is nearly finished, the AudioEngine is still a way off. So even though many do get HD audio from that build some things don't work or it is just buggy in general.

Thanks for the tip.
I edited the playercorefactory.xml to use MPC only for HD audio streams by looking the file name for "DTS-HD", "DTS-MA", "trueHD".... now its working the way i want
Hopefully we'll soon have a XBMC version with stable HD audio stream

Can i configure MPC to exit when i click on Stop button (as in the internal player)?
BTW, I'm using HP media center remote

Thanks bluray for the guide, as I can now play TrueHD content through launching the alternative XBMC.
For some reason most of my DTS/AC3 content will not work through this, however I can just launch the regular XBMC when not watching HD Audio content. The audio will also have slight breaks every now and again (0.5s of silence).Your link to the realtek driver did not work, however I ended up downloading the ATI HD driver from the realtek site...perhaps thats whats causing the problem?
Using a combo of both will however do me fine until the final Eden release (which I assume will have this inbuilt as std?)

It's not a good idea to mess around with developer codes (AE) while developer "Gnifs" is developing it. He's trying his best to develop (AE) with little to no help by other developer!
To me, XBMC should make HD audio a high priority and give Gnifs the resource and help he needs to complete it!

I thought anyone could compile XBMC code come github? Isn't that where this AudioEngine build came from in the first place?
He could have also could have been as polite as I was.

you're free to compile AE branch or any other XBMC branch yourself - but expect it to be buggy. Also I think no dev has anything against pull requests if one is eager enough to dig into this topic and fix issues.
