I haven't been around in a while but where is Evil Chris? Does he still come here?
Haven't seen him in a few months... I think his last post was something about gay mormons or something... something along those lines.

Definitely can't wait to rewatch Kingdom of Heaven, Live Free or Die Hard, and X-Men 3 when this update hits.
no it was not the best. but it is becoming or has become the best.

i want to get one this summer for BD movies and Gran Turismo.

That sounds about normal.

What actually is the best Blu Ray player out now (besides the PS3, I'd rather not have a game machine)? I think I saw somewhere that the new Panasonic DMPBD30K was one of the best. What do you all think?

yes.

to transport any multichannel lossless audio formats (either as bitstream or linear PCM), HDMI has sufficient capacity.

They physically don't have the capacity unfortunately. I don't think the creators invisioned we would be at the stage we are now and so soon.

Optical is 4mbps max and coax is 10mbps max. HDMI is several gigabits but I don't remember the exact figure. DTS-MA and Dolby TrueHD both need way more than 10mbps.

Optical can transmit uncompressed audio but only has enough bandwidth to transmit 2-channel PCM not full 5.1 or 7.1 like HDMI can.

Same here, I've played around with Pirates of Carribean setting it to PCM track and letting my receiver covert to "surround" mode. Even though its not true surround, the difference is still quite noticeable. Can't wait to get a new receiver though, I've got my eye on the Yamaha RX-V663 for a while. Hopefully I can get one by time Weeds (Season 3) comes out in June with its 7.1PCM track. We love that show, lol.

DTS-HD MA Limited

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post13652511

This is what the PS3 has. It is not a bug, it is just a limitation of the PS3. For full DTS-HD MA 7.1 playback across all titles with it, you need a standalone.
