NTS:: XBMC + MP3 playback

This took some checking to find, and it's kinda counter-intuitive... do not, not ever, use Crossfade in XBMC if you want MP3 playback to work with a guri el-cheapo spdif soundcard to work under XBMC.

Under Crunchbang 9.01, avoid PulseAudio, ALSA works just fine, thanks very much - here's my asound.conf if you're in the same boat as I was:

pcm.dmixer {
type dmix
ipc_key 1024
ipc_key_add_uid false
ipc_perm 0660
slave {
pcm "hw:0,1"
rate 48000
channels 2
format S32_LE
period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_time 0
buffer_size 4096

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "dmixer"
