Re: stereo only TruHD
I think everyone is hoping the manual is mistaken or that it's true only until a firmware update is available(like it was with the toshibas). It seems no one really knows right now (or isn't talking if they do). It's only going to be a few weeks until it's on the store shelves so the feeling now probably is just wait and see...
Otherwise, rather than all formats being available, you'll have:
LPCM 5.1 - 7.1 (mostly available on Blu-ray titles)
regular dolby and dts dvd audio formats
I haven't seen any 6.1/7.1/TruHD titles - the studios have seemingly only released 5.1 TruHD. There are some 6.1 PCM Blu-Ray titles like "Crank".
New: After a little checking, there are indeed some new titles coming out with full 7.1 hd audio:
Hairspray - Blu-Ray 7.1 DTS-MA !!
3:10 to Yuma - Blu-Ray 7.1 PCM
