A late comer here.
I got the BX370 from Costco last week, I think it's the same or almost identical to the S3700 in other retails.
Anyway, I hope someone can verify this for me before I return it.
Is it true that it doesn't support TrueHD audio format when playing via USB?
I have an .mkv with TrueHD format, and I cannot play it, it indicates "audio format not supported", I cannot even play other audio track.
I've searched around and it seems it should but it won't work for me.
Not sure if Sony product really not support TrueHD or just a firmware bug (I've updated to the latest firmware, R30.xx380)

Note: it plays DTS-HD MA .mkv file just fine.

Tinhvo, I can't speak to whether the BDP-BX370 is similar/identical to the S3700. But there's no way that it's similar in terms of support needs and format compatibility to the BDP-S370. That's the owner thread you've posted in and these decks (the S370 and 470) are now about four years old.

Here's the owner thread for the 3700 (not to be further confused with the 370):

Sony S1700 / S3700 /S6700 Blu-ray players

Yeap, I realized that I've posted in the wrong thread
Posted once in the S3700 thread already.

The Costco version of this player was the BDP-BX37.

It's the BDP--BX37, which is the same as the BSP-S370. The only difference is the BX37 comes with an HDMI cable and the S370 doesn't.
I bought my BX37 at Sams, so it's not exclusive to any store...

***************NOTICE****************

The S370 (or BX37) latest Firmware update (from several years ago) M03.R.804, HAS A BUG THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE FOX BD OF THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE 1968 PLANET OF THE APES TO FULLY LOAD AND PLAY IN THE S370 (or BX37). THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT SONY HAS CHOSEN TO NEVER CORRECT FOR THIS PARTICULAR DEVICE.

I pretty much give up on playing TrueHD track on this unit.
I don't think it will ever work.
Just surprise that other owners claimed it works for them.
