    just a stupid question that I can't find an 'up to date' answer to.

    For DTS / DCA audio, is it still needed to compile libdca for ffmpeg? or is that merged back in by default in current SVNs ?

    Post your smb.conf file.

    I did notice in 3.2 that samab likes you to rename the smb.conf file to smb.conf.master, and run it through a process to cut down the smb.conf to its 'working' config.
