How ever, Owning a 6.1 Yamaha receiver, I cannot get the signals to work as EX on DD . Will it be possible to get DTS ES discreet with the update? Meaning, if the new sounds "should" be on 7.1, shouldn't I get things at least as dolby digital ex, or with the dts, as DTS ES?
The answer is no currently. But we can consider that in the future. As you know, there is very little activity these days beyond 5.1 encoding. So that would need to change to justify doing the extra work, paying higher royalties, etc.
Second question is quick, I own a Samsung LCD TV, it's only HD ready, but I'm really happy with it. Anyway, I do have a VGA input, but when I use it with the Add-on, colors get really bad, and my tv doesn't allow to alter the settings of VGA. Detail is better, but color is... really bad. Will the update allow me to alter those settings from my xbox as if it were a PC? also, I have dvi input, would you recommend to use a vga-dvi convertor and use it in the meantime to correct this issue and keep the quality of vga??
A converter might work because on some TVs, they make different assumptions for the VGA input than digital (i.e. assuming VGA is always a PC with its video levels which are different than A/V format used in DVDs, HD DVDs, etc.).
btw, when will the update come out?!?!?!? is already April!!
Thank you so much for your time.
Well, we said "early to mid spring," not April
. We are getting close though. So you may want to wait for that update before spending money on adapters and such.
