a note - If your player decodes Dolby Digital, what gets on the HDMI is also PCM, except that it is derived from a lossy source (as opposed to PCM derived from a lossless source)
if you are familiar with WAVs, FLACs and MP3s - think of it this way; the computer can only play PCM (WAV format)
so if you have an MP3, it will have to be decoded to WAV to play - the WAV is uncompressed, but it is sourced from a lossy MP3
