This is a non-issue.
I hope you are right. Seems like the people that makes the discs(BLURAY & HDDVD), the receivers(Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon, Pioneer Elite etc.) and the players from several companies never quite got together to talk about this. If the discs can only be decoded in the player right now. Will these same discs be compatible on future players? And IF they do make discs in the future that pass bitstream to a compatible receiver will these discs be compatible with the current BLURAY/HDDVD players? Just a thought.....
