I should have done my homework regarding the lack of English DD for many BD titles. While my receiver is "ancient" I didn't think I would run into a problem setting up this BD player. It would be a major pain (and expense) to replace the receiver with an upgraded one. Besides, almost all broadcast HD content is DD, 1080p movies from D* are DD, and so are movies on HBO. So, until I introduced the new Sony BD player, no problem!!
I will probably return the player to Fry's just because of this one issue alone. While it has its "plus side" - upscaling 480p to 1080p etc. - the no English DD audio on movie titles will kill it for me. With all of the so-called huge data capacity on these discs, why not include an English DD audio track. I believe the "Australia" disk had three or four foreign languages in DD, but no English.........
