Default DTS-HD Master Audio On PS3

Hey Guys,

Im watching Shoot Em UP BD on my PS3. There is only the option for DTS-HD Master Audio. All other BDs I've chosen PCM.

My question is, how can I verify I am getting the HD track? When I hit the display button it shows DTS.

Can someone do me a favor? Throw on a BD that has DTS-HD and hit display and tell me what comes up?

You can't get the HD track from DTS HD MA titles. You only get the core DTS at 1.5Mbps.

When sony releases the update that they say is comming, the PS3 will decde DTS HD MA and send it via PCM.

I'm beginning to think internal decoding of DTS-MA is a myth but who knows. The Panny xx50 will be the first player w/internal decoding.

Technically if Denon gets their act together, the 3800 will be the first.

It's true. I have the A3 and Pan's Labyrinth running through an Onkyo 705. I don't have 7.1 but the A3 can't decode it anyway. Pan's only audio option is DTS MA 7.1. It defaults to 5.1 DTS core if you're not 7.1 compliant.

I think he was being skeptical of the possibility of the PS3 doing internal DTS HD MA decoding.

Do a search on the threads. There are tons of new threads all the time asking about DTS-HDMA on the PS3.

Bottom line, as of now the PS3 can not decode or bitstream DTS HD or DTS HDMA. You will be getting the DTS core at 1.5 Mbps.

If you search the threads, you will see the other discusssions for a more in-depth explanation.

That sucks.. Why would they only have this track if nothing decodes it. Give us PCM!

There something people keep forgetting.

Since day 1, the PS3 always had the "Dolby TrueHD" logo on it as well as "DTS" and not DTS HD MA.

Why whould Sony be that generous with us PS3 owner and gives us DTS HD MA when they could just try to sell us their expensive standalone ?
