And? Here is a parallel - there was one bluray BD Live title, so it really wasn't an issue only having one 2.0 player on the market (the PS3).

But, things change, and more titles became BD Live, just like I guarantee more titles would have came out with DTS HD MA on HD DVD had it lived. Hell, Universal could have switched to DTS HD MA like they did with bluray.

On a side note, any care to guess why Universal did switch to DTS HD MA as soon as they went bluray? Hmmm....peculiar...

I stated the position of HD DVD supporters that trumpeted 1.5mbps as being "translucent" to lossless. Me personally, I always want lossless - that is why I bought me a lossles receiver. No hassles. I recommend other people upgrade too - when and if they can. I got my 605 last year for ~$350. I think the 606 is cheaper now, with more HDMI I/Os.

TrueHD?

If you notice, I wasn't really talking about you...

Onkyo 606 - ~$350. Good deal. The memorex bitstreams - but you need a lossless reciever to get the full track. With a lossles reciever you will get ALL, not HALF, of the HD audio. Right?
