I second that emotion. It has a ton of great info and it sucks having to go look for it when I need to look something up. Kudos, benes.

It's probably best for you to give up while you're behind. Darin contributes a ton of information and knowledge to this site and it would behoove you to listen to what he has to say. If you pay attention, you just might learn something.

Interesting thing is, he hasn't PM'd me. Because he doesn't care about information, he cares about character assassination. Mainly because I support HD DVD, and I'm not going to play that game with him whether he likes it or not.

Full Disclosure:

I've met Darin personally and I can say without a doubt that he's not the type of person who would attack someone's character nor is he mean spirited in any way. He's an audio video fan with few hatchets to bury.

I think for the sake of "discussion" many of us are more agressive online than we would be in person.

I appreciate the conversion and debate here in this thread. Just keep it on topic and free of personal attacks and the mods can leave it as is and we all can decide for ourselves what point or points we agree most with. All the best

Can a mod please sticky this?? Maybe make a new thread without all of the arguing. The BD section has theirs stickied and its much more up to date. I would be willing to add the HD DVD titles I have if we keep this updated.

If the bickering continues, will have to review again

Did these 3 tonight. I don't know how to calculate the bitrates though.

Could someone please explain what, if any, impact seamless branching has on video bitrate ceilings?

Thanks.

I don't think seamless branching has any impact on bitrate: the rules are more regarding how far away the two things are as I recall. Or maybe we are talking about different things: what exactly are you referring to in this?

However multi-angle does have an impact of course.

A few people finally asked for it so here it is. For the Calculated Video Bitrates I used the same methodology as my blu-ray list. But since HD DVD streams have less overhead I believe these numbers to be more accurate. However things like IME and TrueHD throw a monkeywrench into the calcuations because of their variable bitrates. But I have used the numbers provided by our old friend cjplay and as far as I can tell they are very accurate. I think that the video bitrates are accurate to within + or - 1Mbps.

One of the main reasons for these lists is to show the audio specs which are not otherwise easily available. For the "advanced codecs" here are the conclusions I have come to:

Warner uses 16bit/48khz TrueHD (lossless)
Universal uses 24bit/48khz TrueHD (lossless)
Studio Canal uses 16bit/48khz DTS-HD Master Audio (lossless)
The few DTS-HD High Resolution tracks we have are 24bit/48khz (lossy)

The one thing I have no way of figuring out is what the sampling rate is on the 1.5Mbps DD+ tracks. I have heard claims of all three (16bit, 20bit, and 24bit). Perhaps someone in the know can shed light on this.

For the 640Kbps DD+ tracks I'm pretty sure they are 16/48 just like regular AC3 tracks at the same bitrate.

Happy to oblige.
DTS has many flavours.
DTS Core Audio is at either 1509 KBPS or 768KBPS, and can be from 16/20 or 24 bit audio with a sample rate of 48KHz.
All DTS decoders can decode these streams.
DTS-HD gets confusing.
What you have are the following:
DTS-HD Core Audio - see above.
DTS-HD High Resolution 7.1 or 5.1 can have a bit depth of up to 24 (preferred) and a bit rate of either 2046, 2304, 2559, 2814 or 3018Kbps.
Sample rate can be 48KHz or 96KHz.
DTS-HD MAS is a true, VBR lossless stream with a built-in DTS core at up to 1509Kbps, so the stream is fully backwards compatible.
One of the great secrets of DTS encoding is that the resulting file always sounds better from a 24 bit source.

As far as DD and DD+ goes - the same applies. Encode from a 24 bit source, and the results are allegedly better. The file will still be exactly the same.
I always encode even "regular" DD from 24 bit source files, never mind DD+.
(Still not really sure about the point of DD+. Regular DD can encode at up to 640kbps already - but DTS is superior anyway.

Hope this helps!

EDIT
Why anybody would bother using 16 bit Audio for a DTS encode is beyond my comprehension!

Is the DTS track for Riddick really DTS-HD, or just regular DTS?

thank YOU benes for providing this list. i was actually looking through it to find only the truehd movies =P. i plan to grow my HD DVD collection with TrueHD movies and then wait for the rest of the titles on the list to double dip with TrueHD later on . so here's a list of HD DVD's copied from your list with TrueHD that i plan to acquire 1by1. so far i have none from this list.

Great thread. @OP. Is there anyway you can re-post your list as an .xls? I would love to be able to print the list for future buying references. Thanks in advance.

love the thread but any chance we can optimize the list for widescreen monitors? otherwise I find myself copying and pasting the whole thing into notepad.... no need to have to scroll left to right.

thanks!

Both Darin and Michael have made valuable contributions on this site. Both also have a clear bias. Michael's screen name makes his loyalties a little more obvious, but Darin has his as well. Darin's is just a little harder to find because of his massive post count. Both are educated consumers and both have a bias. I have personally debated both on several occasions and have learned to appreciate their intelligence and dedication to their format of choice.

We don't know if King Kong would have been able to handle TrueHD because we don't know what the peak bit-rates for the video and PiP features on KK were nor what the peak bit-rate for a TrueHD soundtrack would be. It may very well be true that TrueHD would have exceeded the peak bit-rate that HD DVD is capable of. Score that one as a probable true statement from Darin.

We know that Universal RARELY includes TrueHD tracks on their films. We also know that WHV has included TrueHD, IME and stellar video encodes on several films. Those can be scored as true statements for Michael.

The truth of the matter is that Universal would have had a hard time fitting a TrueHD soundtrack within the bit-rate budget for the KK HD DVD, but even if they could have done it without a hitch they might not have done so because they only include TrueHD in about 1 in 25 or 30 films.

Another truth is that the VC-1 encode has been evolving over the last year and KK could probably reach the same level of PQ at a lower video bit-rate if it were encoded again today. That being the case I think they are both correct; Darin when he says that TrueHD on KK was theoretically impossible on HD DVD last year and Micheal when he says that TrueHD on KK is theoretically possible today.

I would be really impressed if both could admit to these facts, but having debated both of them I'm not going to hold my breath.

Anyone have the full specs for "face off"? This movie has to be the best transfer to HD, both in audio & video that I have ever seen & heard. NO hyperbole here guys, I have seen the 300/Transformers etc... this is the first time I actually did not need to touch the volume control when whatching this in DD+. In, fact the DTS sounded even fuller to me. Anyone else see this movie yet?

Set UP : Pioneer Kuro 6010 (calibrated), A2 , Integra 7.6 AVR with HDMI.

Besides the DNR-ed look on Face/Off the PQ and the SQ was top notch.

Mr. benes, Please try to post the stats for Face/Off and Pans Labyrinth.

I am curious -- being format neutral, I purchased the Harry Potter movies on Blu-ray (a BOGO) and there are no scene indexes in the menus and the menus look like somebody typed them on an old Remington typewriter (I won't explain what that ancient device is for you young'uns, you can Google it)

Are there full menus including scene selections in the HD-DVD versions of Harry Potter?

MikeSp

Pioneer Elite Kuro, McIntosh amplifiers -- MC501 monos (3) and MC352's (2), McIntosh MX150 pre-pro; Oppo 83SE; speakers -- Aerial Acoustics Model 9's for mains and CC5 for center, Def Tech BPVX/P's and BPVX's for surrounds and JL F113's (2) for subs; Roku 3; PS3; Wiii; Tivos; and Monster HTPS...

Yes

HD-DVD: 115 Blu: 6
Latest HD-DVD: All of them at Frys for under $10.

Latest BD: No incentive to pick up discs now that the format war is over. Netflix via xbox and mail is more that sufficient.
