Sorry to say, but that was the price that had to be paid for Apple's complete inability to care about this.
Perhaps an Applescript can be made that does a batch processing of the files. Apple has made sure there is no way to detect that you've changed the layouts.

As of May 3, 2011, a "fix" for broken AC3 passthrough (noisy static instead of actual audio) with iTunes 10.2.x is to downgrade iTunes back to 10.1. Tested and worked fine for me. Instructions here: ... itunes-10/

iTunes 10.1 installer here: ... -2-airplay

I had to dig through Google cache of a deleted Apple support thread to find that much... if I didn't know better, I'd think Apple is trying to force everybody to get all their content directly from iTunes... and I'm not entirely sure that I know better.

(I failed to note to start with... audio playback had been broken for me in Front Row. I don't even bother importing movies into iTunes itself.)
