I have an A35 and played a Dolby TrueHD disc on the player and it showed up as such on the front panel of the 1800. I do note, however, that with the disc I was using, and with two different receivers (the 1800 and the Pioneer Elite 92), I had to select TrueHD as soon as the menu was available. If I waited a little bit or allowed the movie to start, then even though the disc showed I selected TrueHD, it was giving me PCM or Dolby Digital, I forget which.
I don't think this is an issue with the Yamaha receivers (since it happened on the Pioneer Elite as well). I think it's an issue with the disc, or maybe with the A35. But I think every DVD player/receiver combo has some glitches, and for me the A35 thus far has worked well with every receiver I've paired it with, including the Yamaha 1800.
