Directly from Sony's website on the BDP-S550 (same for 350)

Dolby® TrueHD internal decoding
Dolby® TrueHD internal decoding and bitstream output via HDMI™ for the Dolby TrueHD and dts®-HD (Master Audio and High Resolution Audio) codes delivers studio quality audio designed specifically for high definition entertainment like Blu-ray Disc™ movies, with up to 7.1 channels of surround sound that is virtually indistinguishable from the original studio version.

They make no comment about firmware adding this on the firmware page either.

Buy the BDP-S550 on Amazon try it out for 30 days and if you don't like it send it back.

Folks,
I need info again....as far as 7.1 inputs are concerned...do the LG BD300 or Samsung BD-2500/2550 meet the criteria. I ask that because Netflix is enabling video streaming through these particular players. I've belonged to Netflix for the last million years so I was hoping I could get the best of both worlds...the best audio through the Lex and convenient video through the internet....the quality of the downstreaming I'm NOT quite sure about!!!!! + BluRay video.

Yes the BDP-S550 does decode DTS MA as long as you have a receiver that can decode DTS MA.

If your Bluer ray is decoding the DTS MA why does the receiver/amp have to decode it also as it should just amplify the analog information it is receiving from the multi channel analog outhputs.
