Same here. I bought the thing on the promise that they would support DD5.1.

Thank you! I'd never heard of that site before but will definitely be checking it regularly now. (I'm most interested in popular music)

Thanks again. I guess I need to keep my eyes out for these since I do still have a player.


Have there been any new DVD-A or SACD releases in the last couple of years?

Thank you!


Bluray audio it is then. I look forward to trying some of them out. I just hate to invest in another media format that dies out very soon.

Apologies if this has been covered or I'm in the wrong forum, but, what media format is there (if any) for high definition audio these days?


I've got a handful of DVD-A and SACDs but it seems...

Is drag&drop really faster than cut&paste? I would expect them to be the same. (except for the fact that drag&drop is really a "copy" where cut&paste would be a "move").

Hey Mark, you may be right - I've just never seen it before and assumed it was new. If they still don't search Netflix then that's a bummer.

Still no update. I wonder why they roll it out so slow? Are they trying to regulate the number of service calls they get?

Yup. I'm more of a RAID 5 guy. Mirroring takes too much storage. At least with a parity drive I can recover from a bad drive (even if it takes a long time to do it).

Figured it out. Windows lets you span a volume across disks. I don't like that a single drive failure spoils the whole barrel. That's reason enough to go RAID or unRAID.

Thanks Kelson. I do hate the time it takes to run Handbrake and get the size right. Subtitles, audio tracks, etc. It would be much easier to just run MakeMKV and be done.

I think that since the narration made it clear that this story is being re-told, the narration was crucial for us to accept the presence of the UFO. The two go together.
