Default Bitrates for new codecs

I have two LG BH100 players and just received a firmware update from LG. My Yamaha rec. measures the bitrate of the incoming signal. I don't think the player can play Dolby True HD in 5.1. My rec. reads Dolby Digital as 440kbps, Dolby True HD as 640kbps, DTS as 768 kbps, and DTS-MA as 1536 kbps. I think the LG player is converting the True HD signal to Dolby Digital Plus. Does any one know the bitrate of dolby True HD? Also can anyone confirm that my bitrates are correct for the new codecs?

I have a BH-100, and I am pretty sure it does not play (decode) Dolby TruHD or DTS-HD MA.
It just plays (decodes) the core HiRes for both.

The BH-200 had an upgrade to be able to play (decode) Dolby TruHD, but can not play (decode) DTS-HD MA.
I had to get a Denon DVD-3800BDCI to be able to play (decode) DTS-HD MA.

Sorry. It seems LG is only updating the BH-100 to be able to play some of the new discs that have been coming out lately.
At least you can still play HD DVD.

I know it's not the ultimate answer, but can you for now set your BD player to convert lossless codecs to LPCM over HDMI? That way you'd still get lossless at least, and it will sound clearly better than the core for either DD or DTS.
