Well, I am not as technically savy as most of you on this thread. Here is what I can tell you so far. Very easy to set up. Hooked up the HDMI from the Samsung to the Denon, plugged in the Samsung and hit the menu to set up the audio, etc. Have it set up for bitstream (there is also an audiophile bitstream option that will only decode the main track - You can't listen to the other available audio tracks when in this position). I also plugged a lan cable to my wireless bridge from the Samsung and turned on the ntp server on the unit and it set the time and date.
I ''looked'' at the following movies:
HD DVD - Blazing Saddles - Looked great, sounded great. Denon decoded audio as DTS 5.1. All of the menus worked very well too.
BD - Pirates: Curse of the Black Pearl - Looked fantastic, sounded excellent. Denon decoded as DTS 5.1.
DVD (Upscaled) - Gladiator - This looked very good (my Oppo upscaled equally as well). The Denon decoded as DD5.1
What movie do I need to get the Dolby True HD? I have the Denon set up for 7.1.
I will have more for all of you later today. I will try and answer any questions you have too.
