TrueHD has been around a while now. I am able to process it with my HD DVD player and output into 5.1 analog on my Arcam. Sounds great!
But I still plan to do the firmware mode so I can route the audio via HDMI.
This should still support players that do decode TrueHD, etc.
Will not help if you have Blue Ray, although I thought their latest models did on-board decoding. Since 'winning' it seems they are lazy now about doing anything Toshiba already did earlier, But considering the amount of customers enthusiastc about HD players, I guess not many care anyway.
As far as decoding in the Arcam, I am sure that will take a chip change.
