No Signal w/ HD-PVR + DD5.1

Since switching to WHS as my main Sage server, everytime I try and enable S/PDIF/Dolby 5.1 on my HD-PVR, I get "No Signal" on every channel tuned by the HD-PVR. When I switch back to Component only, everything works just fine. So, being a good-little-end-user, I troubleshot as much as I could, then enabled logging and sent the logs in to Sage. I have not seen too many complaints about this issues on the board, so figured it was something weird on my setup and Sage support would just tell me "sorry about your luck, now go away." Well, once again, SageTV, the company, has exceeded my expectations. I just got an email from support telling me that they have recreated the issue and will fix it soon.
Huh? You'll actually fix a bug!?? I've only been a full time SageTV user for less than a year, so you'll have to excuse my astonishment. I came from the MS Media Center world where any bug reports are met with maniacal laughter followed by deafening silence. I had one other experience with SageTV support reporting a bug and they actually fixed that one as well. I have absolutely no idea how to react to a software publisher who listens to their customers, addresses issues in a timely fashion, and releases applications that conform to market trends. This could be a very interesting business model!
