I found this on a polish forum that was posted in an lcd forum here and it's apparent that it's a full featured player

I can't read that language, but as best I can tell the last two pictures you posted aren't the DV-BP1, but the BD-HD100 also shown in that thread.

I can't read it either :D but they say pictures are worth thousand words and the only thing of interest to me is to see those logos ;)

If this thing has HDMI 1.3, then those Dolby and DTS logos could be refering to the pass-through of the digital stream to a surround sound receiver to decode the stream. If those logos represent that the player will do the decoding internally, it would need to have 7.1 analog audio outputs on the back (or convert to PCM within the player and send it via HDMI 1.2). Either way, without actually seeing the back of it, nobody really knows what those logos mean.

Stats according to the DVD City listing of the product:

Quote:
Available in October 2006, Sharp announces their first Blu-Ray Disc player, the Sharp DV-BP1. A perfect companion to the line of Sharp AQUOS LCD TV's, the DV-BP1 Blu-Ray Disc Player will handle the Sony Blu-Ray disc format, featuring 1080p output via the digital HDMI interface. Also features Component Video output, and 5.1-channel analog and Optical and Coaxial digital audio outputs. Price: $999

So, the question begs to be asked: If Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA support 7.1, why no players with 7.1 analog outputs?

Because most of the players may end up supporting 7.1 only through the digital (HDMI) audio outs.

All DVD players support 5.1 and 6.1 audio, but most of them only have 2-channel analogue outputs. The 5.1/6.1 support is through the digital (coax/optical) audio outputs.

Indeed, one of the two upcoming Toshiba HD-DVD players don't have 5.1 analogue outputs.

Scroll up to the begining of this thread and look at the pic showing the back of the Sharp BD player. Does it have 5.1 analogue outputs?

Based on other pictures in the Polish thread, it appears to be the BD-HD100, which is mentioned here:

Thanx. So it's a Blu-ray recorder, and obviously plays BD discs too. If it plays BD movies, then I guess that's an example of a BD player without 5.1 outputs.

The presence of these Dolby logos means at least a 2-ch decoder is in the player. In the special case of DD+, there is no 2-ch mode for BD, so it would imply there's a 7.1 DD+ decoder.

A player does not have to provide more than 2 analog outputs, even if it is decoding more channels for HDMI (1.1, 1.2, or 1.3) output.

Is it just me, or does the DVD logo on the player (both on the flyer and in the encased photo) look like it has more than just the words video underneath it?? Does this mean this player also supports DVD-Audio??

^ Looks like you're right about the logo. But let's not ignore the word "Prototyp" on the sign. Until this player is actually released, I'd say the specs are subject to change.

It was posted on Polish HD forum, but the text itself on this picture is in German.
