Default Re: New Toshiba A35 HD DVD Player

The new A35 still does not support the DTS HD Master Audio format. Not bitstream and not decoding. What's with that? How hard can it be to incorporate that into the player. It plays normal DTS and DTS-HD HR (core only). DVD has Dolby Digital and DTS. Why can't the new players have those and TrueHD and DTS HD Master? I don't see what's so hard about that.

Instead it seems the players can do everything but straight passthrough the audio formats. Transcode it, decode it, re-encode it...but it won't pass it along uninterrupted. Seems like it takes more work to do all the mumbo jumbo inside the player than to just allow the DTS HD Master Audio to be passed to the receiver.
