Not real sure where to ask.
Curious to know what the difference would be, as far as sound goes, between watching a movie on say HBO in HD through my cable dvr box in Dolby Digital 5.1 versus watching that same movie on Blu-Ray?
The reason I ask in this thread is because I am mainly curious if there are differences in the low octaves, and just what similar differences may be? Thanks (sorry if it is wrong place for this question)
The main difference of course is that the cable sound is DD 5.1 whereas the BD sound is (usually) one of the lossless codecs - Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD MA.
Here in the UK my satellite TV service gives me full-fat DD 5.1 sound on movies etc and I can hear no difference at all between the 5.1 off the satellite TV and 5.1 off a DVD. YMMV in the US of course.
