I finally found the option for the digital audio output in xine. It was right in the FAQ for xine, and I'm not sure how I missed it before. Just had to change the audio.speaker_arrangement:
option in the ~/.xine/config file and set it to Pass Through
. It seems the default is to output two channel audio. So that is all working properly again, and everything is well with the freevo box. I still have one thing that I've been meaning to do for a while and that is setup a screensaver so that when it's idle for a long time it just cycles through a slideshow or something.
