We are informed that it's simply too expensive to pay the hefty licence fee to Dolby Labs. If they included a Dolby chip inside, that would make Nvidia's chips too expensive and, worst of all, non competitive with Via, ATI and SIS chipsets.

So which part in an Asus P5AD2 Premium actually does the DD-encoding? I know it uses the C-Media CMI9880 Azalia Audio Codec, but my trail ends there. What about Intel's HD Audio specs, don't they call for DD-encoding?
Actually I just hope that one of the top MB-manufacturers out there are brave enough to make a motheboard for Athlon 64 capable of "Dolby Digital Live". Number 1 feature I'm lookinf for for my next board, was really looking forward to nForce4 up to 4 days ago :(
