I will check this when I get home again.
So the way I read this is:
DTS HD MA -> decodes to -> DTS HD MA
DTS HD HR -> decodes to -> DTS
I still don't see where it implies no decoding of DD+ though. Is this why they have a footnote "Outputs audio from an independent substream" and if so, why don't they just say "For DD +, outputs DD" like in footnote 3 for DTS?
BTW - the 3800 thread is way too long now to easily search for specific issues like this. This happens a lot for popular pieces of gear. While I also hate that you are the one to break the bad news to me, I appreciate the information. I wish there was a way to break some of these issue out into sub-threads or individual threads. I will check the 8002 thread and perhaps mention it there if it hasn’t been already.
Is there a fix for this on the way?
So back to the chart, if this is true, then it seems both the 3800 and the 8002 would have to be modified with footnotes that they will decode DTS HD MA, but DTS HD HR is reduced the std DTS, the same possibly with DD+.
