No workaround. (I maintain my audio in WAV files to retain as much of the original audio information as possible. Hard drives are cheap nowadays...)

and 3. Build quality is poor. when I turned mine off, I always got a big POP in the audio receiver. Something is not grounded properly in the hardware. I would have turned it in for repair/replacement except 1 and 2 made me put it in the scrap heap.
*sigh* Well, I'm not really surprised... It did sound too good to be true But it's just that my old Xbox gen 1 isn't really equipped to handle my media anymore. It's too slow. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wish for a HTPC instead
