Hey guys, I've got a question regarding how to get the best audio from a TrueHD track;
My receiver only supports standard DTS 96/24 and Dolby Pro Logic II. So if I'm listening to a disc with TrueHD, like Starship Troopers, do I want to set the player to output Dolby Digital or PCM?
Same question in regard to DTS HD tracks.
I'm assuming I'm not alone here; Why are the menus on Universal HD DVDs so unresponsive on this player?
On my HD-A20, the menus were fluid and very quick to browse through. On the 5K, I'm reminded of how Windows 95 felt during a memory leak.
Is this something a firmware update could/will fix?
My primary player is now my Samsung BD-UP5000. But my original and now backup is my A20, which I will probably never get rid of since I think it is one of the coolest looking pieces of tech I have ever seen.
