I believe DTS-HD and DTS-MA are one in the same. LG just miss labeled it in the on screen graphics i bet.

No.... DTS-HD encompasses both DTS-HD HR (lossy) and DTS-HD MA (lossless). Most Blu-Ray players will do DTS-HD HR internally. DTS-HD MA is a different animal.

You are correct, the BH100 does not decode DTS-MA.

Check over in the "LG BH200 Owner's" thread. Someone has reported getting a firmware update disc from LG dated 12/5/08, but they haven't been able to upload the ROM file to a public site yet.

I dont know what the LG boffins have done but it sure as hell looks like they have been paying attention to you SSM - I was able to play back the 3 most problematic chapters of Iron Man with only 1 tiny tiny audio clitch and no full scale HDMI drop-outs at all.

I haven't had a chance to test anything else out yet or go new feature hunting but so far I am one very happy LG Customer!

Thank you for your efforts SSM, they are very, very much appreciated.


EDIT: DOH, after trying to force 1080p my dropouts are back and repeatable despite putting it back to forced 1080i mode which is where it was the first time I played thru chapter nine of Iron Man. I really dont get why it should work perfectly once and then start being a PITA again??

Ok one more test complete: will the BH200 ignore incomplete EDID data and let me force 1080p on my Pio Plasma - sadly no*, but Im going to buy a DVDO EDGE Video processor anyway and hope this will solve that particular problem.

*Initially it changes to 1080p but reverts back to 1080i as soon as the disc tries to load its menus.

Thank you VERY MUCH for your excellent effort.
I will wait to LG writes a changelog to apply this, because I don't want to risk losing SD DVD region free or multiregion Blu-ray.

But it can't be said enough. Thanks for your big effort.

Thank you samsungmaster for your upload!

First impressions on the new firmware:

+ You can still change Region Codes for BD and DVD

- 4:3 bug is still there
- 1080p60 bug (no 1080p24 output) on some HD-DVDs (e.g. T2 German HD-DVD) is still there
- still NO SkyNet Access (online access) on German T2 HD-DVD
- NO BD-R/RE playback

I see no changes to the June firmware

Dont know yet, I suspect not though since we have not seen any HDDVD related updates in a long time. The Janurary firmware was best for HDDVD.

Any way, I have alot of the bugged HDDVD disks including Planet Earth and will let you know if it fixes any of them in 4 hours once I get home.

I had to retract my comments about improved HDMI Stability/Compatibility - seems my initial results were a fluke and after several power cycles I can get still get Iron Man to glitch at the 1:10 mark where Stark say's "I could fire you if you like".

The Glitching is not quite as bad as with the June FW as the screen doesn't goes black with no audio but it pauses/stutters instead but for slightly less time.

I Also tried the BD-Live option in Iron Man and as expected it doesn't work (claims no network connection present) - personally I could care less about BD-Live, I just wanna watch my movies in the correct aspect ratio and without drop-outs of any kind (Bit-streaming of legacy Audio codecs but decoding HD codecs on-board over HDMI would be nice too).

Sounds like this might only be for the FOR YOUR EYES ONLY bug.

Crap, I was thinking of getting rid of my only Toshiba EP10. Perhaps I should hang on to it now.

Query whether the new (major) firmware update for the bh200 will stream youtube and yahoo movies/videos, as announced at CES by LG? Netflix sure would be nice, too. See article: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,477744,00.html

Stalingrad is a faulty pressing. It only works on second gen Tosh, even 1st and 3rd gen Tosh cant play it, it is not LGs fault.

When will this be on the LG site, or downloadable for the 11th person or higher crowd?
