You are right. I found the information in Sound and Vision's current issue revealing the 2500 Profile 2.0 BR player has a forthcoming firmware update to enable DTS-HD HR. No mention of DTS-HD MA.
What's the difference in HR and MA? I know MA is the better of the two but is there a difference in HD and HR?
It's also interesting that Consumer Report has no, none, zero BR players listed in their top 7 picks although Samsung did pretty well in the LCD (1st & 2nd in 52", 1st in 46-47", 1st & Best Buy in 40-42", 6th in 37", 1st in 32", and 4th in 26" categories. In Plasma Samsung came out 1st in 58-60", 1st (Best Buy), 3rd, & 6th in 46-50", 4th in 42", with none listed in the 32" category.
Sammy didn't do too hot in the frequency of repair coming in 9th out of 16 in LCDs and 4th (next to bottom) out of 5 in the Plasma TVs.
Looks like Samsung needs to pump some time, money, energy and quality into the BR player division along with build quality into the TV division. I suspect the profits are tilted a lot toward the flat panel side of the equation resulting in a better initial showing for the TV division.
