As I pointed out a few posts above, low-mid range receivers (typically) do not have this functionality. Mine doesn't. So for the time being, without compression, I'll have to stick with 5.1 over analog multi-channel, for lossless, which is what I do now.
I'm led to believe that at this moment there aren't any BD disks with TrueHD as there are in HD DVD?? This will likely change and the PCM track may take on some changes as well.
