Thank you for correcting me Tranz...I clicked on the rebate info on amazon.com and that's where I got it from. Wow...I just might have to get the A-35 come december when The Bourne Supremacy comes out. Upconverting was never a big feature for me anyways.

I think it was mentioned, but if your receiver takes HDMI, you should be set, at least for now. Your new HD-DVD player will decode TrueHD on board and sent to the receiver in PCM, so no need to upgrade the receiver.
How bout that? You wanted to upgrade the receiver, found out you don't need to, and now have to upgrade the HD-DVD player!

All kidding aside, to wrap up everything in this thread with accurate information:
- You DO NOT need a new receiver that is capable of decoding TrueHD or DTS-HD in order to achieve this lossless sound. You either need an HDMI capable receiver and decode in the player and have it sent out via LPCM, or you need receiver with at least a 5.1 multichannel analog input and a matching player with those outputs. Both of these options will get you the lossless next-gen audio.
- The A30 (and all other 3rd gen HDDVD players) has 300 and Bourne Identity in the box.
- All 3rd gen players still qualify for 5 free movies by mail but will be eligible for a different promotion starting October 1st from Toshiba.
- A30 is available now, while A3 and A35 will be available next month.
I think I hit mostly everything here and added one or two tidbits.
Screen: Panasonic 50" 1080p 50PZ700U
Sound: Denon 3808, DefTech 1000s

HDDVD = 58
Bluray = 31

I was wrong...the new A35 will be able to send TrueHD via bitstream even if the discs are authored in advanced mode. So if you wanna get a TrueHD reciever and A-35 you'll hear the same thing but at least it'll say "Dolby TrueHD" on your reciever

should...i don't see why not. I think they're packaged with the player no matter who the retailer is.

I might be reading this wrong so I wanted to be sure. Right now I have the xbox 360 add-on and I know I can't get lossless audio out of it. If I where to upgrade to one of the newer 3rd gen players can you send the lossless audio to your receiver via optical or does it have to be HDMI?
just from reading it looks like the lossless could be sent over analog which I'm assuming means optical. this would be great news.
is the difference worth the trouble?

hello... I'm in the same boat, I have a JVC RX-6510VBK (its really old) i have my HD-A2 running an optical cable to it and I am looking to upgrade my reciever so that I can enjoy Dolby True HD... I am really liking this Onkyo TX-SR605S. It seems to everything I need and the price is amazing. The only thing that troubles me is that it is 90 Watts per channel and my current reciever is 100/watts per channel! Will that make a huge difference?... am i upgrading the quality but losing the loudness? Would it be worth is to get the Onkyo TX-SR705 just for those 10 watts and the THX thing? Someone please help me... Is it even worth upgrading? thanks...
