That article just points back to the HDBeat article as the source....Another sighting version 1.95 (beta 2.0) in this thread:
umm said:found this link on usenet:
The decoded 5.1 TrueHD audio goes out of the player the same way all decoded audio (i.e. DD+) has always done. It works with linear PCM via HDMI, with the 5.1 analog outputs, and even with the re-encode to 1.5Mbps DTS sent via S/PDIF.Sounds like it went smooth.
Is the 5.1 TrueHD only passed via HDMI?
I'm using the 5.1 analog outputs for audio and 1080i component for video to my 1080p 37" LCD display. I only re-watched POTO last night and the video was superb. Better than before? Hard to say. but none of the issues people have had with the video via HDMI or DVI have ever been a problem with component connection (no color space or BTB/WTW issues ever for component). My HDMI connector on my 37" LCD disply is broken.I've read that PQ has even improved with the new firmware update, Bob can you confirm this? Also what type of connections are you using for audio?
I have the single (I think it is digital something) wire running from the player to the receiver.
What other improvements have you noticed? Also have you noticed any disadvantages with the new firmware?...
