Don't forget that radio frequencies and formatting are different, too. But if you don't use it for OTA reception, that's irrelevant. I dunno if its power supply has been optimized for the type of...

I'd guess that about 1/3 of the BDs that I buy come with a DVD and/or digital download in the same package. It's a little hard to determine if that increases the actual price to me, though.

"Of course" Atmos would provide the overhead reflections!

Surely outside recordings would include the sounds of hawks overhead (if they aren't scared off by all the racket) :)
