The new Elite BD player has the Dolby True HD & DTS HD MA decoders built into it so the receiver doesn't have to have the decoders? They just need the firmware updates to send out the Dolby True HD & DTS HD MA signals & that can be sent out full bitrate thru the analog outs if you don't have a HDMI receiver?
If so that means I wouldn't have to update my reciever later from what your reply was? I can just use the analogs on the Elite flagship receiver I have now & won't lose any sound by doing it that way?
High-Def DVD Player Manufacturers - BOTH FORMATS
- Knew it would be a
very long time [probably 5 years] before the INSTALLED Base of older Receivers
would someday be replaced. Therefore they said lets make sure customers could
enjoy Lossless audio during that transition period. Therefore we will provide two
paths for that ---
1) 5.1 Analog Out - with INTERNAL PLAYER Codecs.
2) 7.1 PCM HDMI Version 1.1 with INTERNAL PLAYER Codecs.
3) Current HD Movie content [both formats] is authored to require
INTERNAL PLAYER DECODE. That means even if you had a receiver
with HDMI 1.3 and lossless codecs in the receiver they WOULD DO
NOTHING. All Decoding would take place in the DVD Player.
If you have 5.1 audio in today - you can enjoy lossless audio over the 5.1
If you buy ANY RECEIVER on the Planet that has at least HDMI 1.1 - then
you are GOLDEN until that receiver DIES of OLD AGE.
The only warning I would put on that last statement is pay attention to
the Video Format the HDMI interface can support. The HDMI 1.1 and up
standards support 1080p. However - some Manufacturers may not have paid
the EXTRA royalties to get the interface certified to 1080p format. If your
new receiver switches 1080p - Then the current receiver technology is GOOD
until it dies [GRIN]!
