Can I just ask a really daft question before the thread gets closed - if Dolby HD and dts Master Audio are both lossless, then technically they are equivalent and therefore not mutually exclusive. In other words they decode exactly the same sound and therefore, only one is required.
Do some discs have one and not the other?

The ps3 shouldnt be expected to do DTS MA it was never ever listed as a capability of the ps3, and it was never inferred either,

Anyone have a guess as to when we'll get an update for the PS3 so it can decode DTS HD MA?? I've got a ton of Fox titles that I'm dying to unlock these soundtracks from!

If you want it that bad, sell you George Foreman Grill and get the Panny BD-30 and you will have DTS-MA.

Another thought--can the BD-30 even be updated to Profile 2.0 whereas the PS3 apparently can? What does a George Foreman Grill have to do with this thread?

If you realy just want the player decode the HD audio to your's receiver you just have the LPCM sound not the real lossless surround audio ......................

I think he is saying that the PS3 looks like a George Forman Grill to him that is all.
