I found a bonus guys! I watched Dan in real life last night with no drop outs but that wasn't the best part. The best option for audio was 5.1 uncompressed. I chose that setting and actually got 7.1 PCM uncompressed!!! So it appears that not only is there a hidden track of standard DD or DTS that someone mentioned earlier but some disks seem to also have upgraded hidden tracks as well.

The file is like 37mb so I think an email is out of the question. Do you have a zip program? If not, you can download a few trial programs for free.

Just use some online sharing site e.g. megaupload.com etc.

Yes with the new firmware!

Cool, thanks. Now that lossless audio problems are solved as well it's becoming more and more interesting - what is the downside of this player?

Sorry guys, just a little confused here.... All I want to know is if this new firmware does the following:

A) Send a true 1080P/24 to the TV. (Some people have already said yes!!) Is it true? Does anyone have a 120Hz or 72hz Pioneer that this can be tested on.


B) Internally decode DD True Hd and DTS MA, and sends it as Multi Channel PCM in 5.1 or 7.1 to a 1.1 or 1.2 HDMI receiver? (NOT a 1.3 receiver that allows bitstreaming) just in case someone gets confused.


Thanks

A) Sorry do not have a 24p capable display.


B) Yes, the BH200 sent DTS-HD MA 5.1 and DD THD 5.1 transcoded to LPCM to my HDMI v1.3 AVR so it should work with a v1.1 AVR as well. I could not tell the difference between raw and transcoded audio. Yeah, it was that good, tested with Kingdom of Heaven. Also my AVR identified the raw audio as 7.1 even when I disable processing, which freaked me out a little because the disc is only 5.1. I am going to play with it some more tonight to see why that is.

So, if I understand you correctly hawkeye, you were testing/sending DD THD & DTS MA (decoded internally by the BH 200) via HDMI, to your AVR HDMI 1.3, as a MUltichannel PCM signal correct ? And it worked perfectly in 5.1 or 7.1.

I also assume you bitstreamed both of these codecs and your receiver decoded them correctly, lighting up the DD THD & DTS MA lights on your receiver.


Thanks

I would be happy to try this, but I don't see how you can attach a file through ther forum's PM. If you send me an email address I will try and send the file.

StardustOne, I assume you are bitstreaming to the Denon (ie. decoding in 4308)?

Yes that's true, I just watched the Renaissance HD DVD and my Denon AVR-4308 decoded the DTS HD 5.1 sound from the English track (the German one is DTS HD Master Audio, worked too).


Although I had two audio and video dropouts with this movie, one just after a few minutes after play back started, the 2nd one in the middle of the movie.

The price?

Not even the price, really. Like many people, I've been waiting until LG released the firmware before I got the BH200. With that done, I ordered mine yesterday for about $575 total, including s&h. Considering there are plenty of old, profile 1.0 Blu-ray players out there still going for $450+, I think that's a MORE than fair price.


I know others have said this before, but I just have to say again KUDOS to LG! I think, for an international compancy with a lot of product diversity, they've done a great job with the BH200 and all of us here on the forums.


Can't wait to get mine!

Thanks for the clarification. I was going to get a Marantz 7002 until I found out it did not matrix 5.1 DTS-MA to 7.1, so now on to Denon...

On the HD DVD side, HDi does not work as seemlessly as the Tosh players. For instance, calling the disc menu stops the movie like a DVD instead of bring it up in front of the movie.


Net connectivity not working atm.


Those are the only downers I've noticed so far.
