There aren't any currently... but the PS3 is a firmware update away from both (onboard and outboard decoding via HDMI 1.3).

I honestly can't say that I've heard about one 'on the way' other than that.

As of right now, besides the PS3, the only player that can decode TrueHD now is the Panasonic. And the only standalone player that is expected to decode both formats at launch is suppose to be the Samsung BD/HD combo player. I believe the new Sony may decode TrueHD but I am not certain. At the very least it will have HDMI 1.3 and it (along with the B1200 Sammy) can send the signal out to a receiver for decoding if you ever get one.

The Panasonic can decode Dolby TrueHD & DTS-HD but not DTS-HD MA. I have one & it does both but not MA. It's only HDMI 1.1 not HDMI 1.3 so the player decodes it & sends it out as PCM over the HDMI or 7.1 analog outs.

Some of the Lionsgate titles have DTS-HD like Terminator 2 & Total Recall, etc.

(Warning: Sarcasm ahead)

Apparently, as of today, our PS3's can't decode TrueHD anymore.

Who knows tomorrow EngadgetHD might decide my HD-A2 doesn't decode TrueHD either.

Sorry, but you are incorrect. The PS3 can decode TrueHD onboard. What they are saying is the PS3 can't send bitstream over HDMI, which they are incorrect on that as well. I guess what they mean the PS3 can't send DTS HD MA bitstream over HDMI.

I guess I should have put the 'sarcasm' point in bold.

According to the Sony insider on AVS the article is correct. The PS3 cannot send TrueHD over bitstream over HDMI 1.3a. It is an optional feature and it is not enabled on the HDMI that is included in the PS3. Please don't shoot the messenger, I'm just passing along what he said.
