Questions, questions and more questions!!
I've been following ALL of the threads in the Dual Format area since it started. I pick up my 5000 from BB on Wed, and I'm definitely getting it. Yes, I'm a little disappointed about the smaller on board memory, but for me the real thing is to just play the movies!
I've already decided to get an HDMI receiver (Onkyo TX-SR705 - don't have it yet, hopefully soon!) so my question is if the 5000 bistreams TrueHD to an HDMI 1.3a receiver will the receiver get all 5 channels. I know the non-HDMI receiver people need the analogs to work which with the current firmware only gives 2 channels. But from my point of view as long as bitstream works I should be OK.
So anyone with an HDMI 1.3a receiver with TrueHD decode and the 5000, please check how it works with bitstreaming!!! Pretty please!!!!!
