I just read the press release and it doesn't state anything about the player supporting 7.1 analog. It only states the BDT500 provides for 7.1 channel output, which means the player can decode 7.1, which is my understanding.

There is a "50% increase in vertical color data processing" not a 50% increase in video quality.
