From PC via spdif to receiver: sound interrupts

Hello, all
I recently connected my SB Live! via SPDIF to receiver Pioneer 714. Everything is good: I can hear mp3, wav, ac3, ..., but! - when I watch movies with ac3 sound (avi or dvd, I use BSPlayer and PowerDVD) sound sometimes interrupts for a little, and that is really annoying. It happens rather often, ` every 5 minutes. Did anyone faced the same problem?
P.S. I think it's not the weak hardware problem, I've got 2,4Ghz P4, 512 ram, and when I use analog connection (front, centre, surround separately), all's fine. So as I think now the problem is somehow connected with SB Live (old drivers?, bug) or ac3 filter whitch doesn't send to spdif properly

I solved the problem and I maybe this info will help someone else. There is a bug in interaction between ac3, SB Live! (or its drivers) and maybe something else. To be short, you just have to check the radiobutton "WaveOut" instead of "DirectSound" in ac3 filter configuration.
