I suspect that is correct. Does that mean they are identical?
The implication of your original post was somehow aimed differently: >>Roger, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't DTS just jumping on the old proverbial bandwagon by offering another multi-channel audio format like Dolby's for streaming?<<
Again, I never said that it was a step in the wrong direction. Of course the more options the better it is for the consumer, however, if you are going to use the buying soap analogy, then my point was I would be able go on Netflix, Vudu, Cinema Now, Amazon etc.. and chose between Dolby or DTS.
Then we'd better switch to the hamburger analogy.
