Is this for matrixed soundtracks?
Since TrueHD and DTS-HD are primarily discrete soundtracks, the solution would be for the studios not to use matrixing but to follow the discrete model.
I understand that matrixed 6.1 soundtracks can cause a lot of issues.
Whilst I originally thought that some recent releases contained DD+ companion embedded soundtracks to TrueHD, I was incorrect and they are DD EX 6.1 matrixed instead, but maybe that is enough to cause dropout issues with some equipment.
Out of interest, does anyone know if bitstreaming sends the whole THD+DD-EX stream to an AVR, or is only the THD component sent?
