Hi. Not sure if this is in the right area, but is video and sound output from a PC internal blu ray player the same as with a dedicated / standalone blu ray player unit?

Bitstreaming and Wasapi enabled software will be used with an HDMI connection from PC video card to HDMI port of AV Receiver which then has HDMI to TV. Software is J River to play the media and Any DVD HD to get around the protected blu rays. The DTS-HD lights up on the receiver so I'm assuming sound quality is the same.

Do these internal PC blu ray drives play SACD? I cant find the info on the Pioneer website.

I just bought the Pioneer BDR-2208. Wondering if I should just return this and buy a standalone unit instead. I already have the PC next to my home theater..

Thanks in advance!

Ok did some searching around. Looks like Sony banned any PC based drives from playing sacd according to a post I saw from 2008.

There is a dedicated forum for Home Theater computers. You'll find more there.
