So are you saying that full res. uncompressed audio i.e. DTS-HD MA and Dolby TruHD are being sent via analog on BR players?
I understood the analog outs on BR players were only sent core Dolby Digital and core DTS not the full res. uncompressed audio.

Bob,

The BDP-S550 doesn't decode DTS HD, only Dolby TrueHD..... I own the 350, but I only need the bitstream output.
