    I decided to buy any CG heavy movie in BR only, and the rest I'm burning and putting it on my Apple TV. I'll continue to do so until the price of BR movies begin to drop.
    you are buying movies from iTunes? I didn't think anybody did that.

    I still find it lame that WB was idle on The Matrix on BD, and it won't hit until 4th quarter. At least we'll get something the HD DVD crowd didn't get: Animatrix in 1080p.
    You're right. I should have been more specific. Amazon put it on pre-order this week. BTW, I love that they're including the prologue for The Dark Knight.

    Edit: As far as the other "catch-up" titles for Warner Bros. go, V for Vendetta is coming in May and no word yet on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, though I don't care about that one. I pre-ordered VFV already.

    Yes, sir. It's a nice set-up for the new flick.



    I'm looking forward to the Dirty Harry set, as well.

    (From Fox) And the Firefly BR.

    (Lionsgate) And Mad Men with one of the best BR covers yet. (I know it's a new release, but it is one of the best shows on TV these days.)

    for a PS3? If so, you only need a receiver capable of supporting Multi-Channel PCM, since the PS3 will be doing the heavy lifting.

    However, if you are looking for a inexpensive receiver for DTS-HA MA and Dolby TrueHD decoding, I think the Onkyo 605 may still be the less expensive. The new Yamaha RX-v663 will also decode. I think they are in the $500 (MSRP) range, and can be found for under $400.

    I haven't heard any of them, since I am out of the receiver market for a while.

    Apparently there are some problems with 7.1 DTS-HD MA soundtracks - specifically in regards to New Line releases. Fox titles seem to be fine. People are trying to figure out whether it's a mastering issue or a software/hardware issue and if it can be corrected in a future firmware upgrade.

    What's the problem? The tracks aren't playing? Some tracks aren't playing?

    I found it a little odd that when I was upgrading, the prompt that tells you what is new in the upgrade didn't mention the audio support. It only mentioned the new store (which is much better by the way).

    The 7.1 track is being decoded and sent via LPCM in 5.1 only. Forcing the Playstation 3 to output in nothing but 7.1, and a receiver will recognize it as a 7.1 feed, but the two rear speakers are blank. 7.1 tracks from some studios are working fine, and DTS says is a mastering issue that they expect will be able to be fixed via a firmware upgrade.
