save me. He is purposefully misquoting me and misrepresenting my comments on the board. I can handle differences of opinion, but someone lying about what I'm saying is intolerable. Please stop him.

No it isn't. TVs and Receivers don't do all the decoding.

You then say...

You're stating rather clearly that a HDM player using HDMI doesn't have to worry about decoding capabilities. You ignore the fact that most post people with HDMI receivers (about 95%) need the player to decode the Dolby True HD to LPCM to pass through that HDMI connection. You also ignore that the player decodes the video and then sends the info on through the HDMI. Your arguement is that the decoding power of a player isn't important since most will be using HDMI. Which shows you don't know how it works.
