I currently have an Xbox 360 with the HD-DVD drive and a growing collecting of HD-DVD movies.
I want to upgrade to a better featured, more future proof player.
*Must bitstream True-HD, DD+, and DTS-MA over a HDMI 1.3 connection (my new reciever will be doing the decoding)
*5.1 or better analog outputs (temporary till i get my new reciever)
*good compatibility with all HD-DVDs (minimum issues)
*upconversion is not that important (getting DVDO-Edge)
From what I have read, my options are rather limited to XA-2(or HD805), A35, and the BD-UP5000. If there are any other options please chime in??
I'm not too keen on the BD-UP5000 as it seems to have a lot of issues.
Apologies if this topic has been covered but a 10+ page tread requires a lot of time to read. A Constructive suggestion would be an up to date simplified thread covering HD-DVD models and their features.
