Installed the update last night. The PS3 now passes full dts HD but not Dolby TrueHD (Megamind is still downconverted to lossy DD; I'm guessing this is a licensing issue and not a hardware or software limitation and I'm betting that there will be another update in a few months).
To me, this raises the BS flag on the entire HDMI 1.4 spec. At first they told us that 1.3 didn't have enough bandwidth to pass HD 3D. Then they told us that 1.3 didn't have enough bandwidth to pass lossless audio. The HDMI forum either flat out lied and/or were too lazy to innovate on the software to get 1.3 up to spec.
So I fully expect that a technological miracle will be announces shortly stating that 1.3 can now do Deep Color, ARC, and ethernet.
