Volume can be adjusted (from the PC) for PCM, provided you do NOT use WASAPI streaming (aka exclusive mode). Volume can't be adjusted for bitstreamed formats (Dolby Digital, DTS).

Right because the Ethernet connections on BD players (current or future) can easily pass drive data as if it were a NAS device? Standalone players aren't gaming consoles.

That still probably won't work because standalone players can't have their drives/optics easily connected to PCs. Same reasoning explains why you can't just "hack up" a now-cheap DVD/SACD standalone...

Well I tried out my PC with the 5670 in it with a 3D TV. Updated it to Cat 14.12 Omega as well, while I was at it (as it was on 14.9). But no dice on 3D BD. First off MVC decode does not work,...

Despite the fact that they don't do any of that I still maintain all computers with Core2 and later CPUs require an SSD so as not to make them "feel" much slower than they actually are.
