This leads to believe it won't do TrueHD either, anyone got a TrueHD disc to tell. Sorry lparsons my original suspicsions were confirmed, check out the pics.
I see your picture, and I would raise you one, but I'm too darn lazy.
On the disk I had with TrueHD, my receiver shows MPCM, not DTE-ES. So I know it does the TrueHD fine.
Further, I have a DVD (Snakes on a Plane) that has DTS-ES Discrete on it, and my reciever shows DTS-ES Discrete, not MPCM.
What I don't know, except with your picture, is what I would see with DTS-HD as I don't have a disk with that on it.
Maybe its that POS Onkyo you own!
