This is not correct. We cannot sync with PCM, but Dolby HD and DTS MA all work regardless of 5.1, 7.1, etc...

There is a way to use a PC (as a Media/BD Player) to get PCM, but it is not well supported. The biggest draw to this new controller will be being able to watch streaming, and copies (BD, DVD, etc) that were not synced previously by D-Box.

You are correct! Technically, yes, you can only sync on optical or coax (which is basically 5.1 AC3 or DTS, or 2.0 Dolby Digital), but 7.1 formats contain either the "core" DTS stream (5.1), which can be sent via the coax or optical links in the case of DTS-HD, or must contain the AC-3 audio track in the case of Dolby TruHD optional Blu-ray codec...

Was that a special deal you received when you purchased your system?

The MSRP for the KAI-1P is now at a standard 499.99$...

Also I will try to provide accurate answers to your other questions but my contacts are pretty busy with the whole CEDIA Expo preparation!

I will do my best!

Thanks!

Good point. May be better to say that unless you have a BD player that can output both HD audio and lossy audio at the sime time, you will be limited to the legacy soundtracks. The Blu Ray Standard requires the disks to have the lossy track so folks don't have to check for that..
