The player will decode everything from the Analog 5/6/7.1 outputs AND HDMI AND optical output.
There is a misprint on the manual and it would be corrected on the manuals that are inside the box once the player is released.
Dolby Digital Plus and Dloby True HD will play out of all the outputs except the analog Left and Right.
The DTS HD and DTS MA will also play out of all the outputs after the firmware update, that is being worked on as I am typing.
You are all sentencing this player to death and there is no crime committed yet. This thing will kick ass once it is released.
