Default 'Matthews/Reynolds Live' - High-Def Digest review

Peter's review of 'Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds: Live at Radio City' is up, and he says this Blu-ray release from Sony BMG "a must-buy" for Matthews fans and anyone else looking for demo-worthy high-def material. Boasting five-star ratings for both video and audio, the only thing that drags the overall grade is a relatively slim number of included supplements.

Default 2 discs?

I wonder why Sony didn't put this on one disc - sounds like the documentary would have fit on disc one (a BD-50). I guess it is probably to be consistent with the authoring of the 2 x DVD set, rather than a marketing type effort to say that even Blu-ray's current max 50GB per disc is not enough for some films...

No need for that, the PS3 can already handle TrueHD:

The TrueHD-logo is even printed on the box and on top of the PS3.

There's NO, i REPEAT, NO MACHINE ON EARTH RIGHT NOW THAT CAN OUTPUT A BITSTREAM DD TRUEHD OR DTS HD SIGNAL to a AMP.

the Ps3 Can't and will NEVER be able to do so since it utilise a HDMI 1.3 'Lite' transmitter witch can't do that ever.

What you want to do, it, put the HDMI Audio output in PCM sound when you watch a TrueHD track, if you have FW1.9, you can do so by pressing the Triangle(While starting to watch the disc), go to the A/V setting, and switch the output to PCM, then Press SELECT and you'll see that the pS3 is decoding THD signal with the Bitrate and all..

Btw those CAPS aren't for you, but general in the forum

I witch sony would put 2 setting in the HDMI audio like : DD, DTS = Bitstream/PCM

and

TrueHD, DTS HD = CORE/PCM (SInce it will never output Bitstream, put Core, to play the extracted core in those track, it doesn't support DTS HD, but it may come one day)

The second disc of extras is also included on the concurrently-released DVD edition. Although the content of that extra disc is indeed presented in high-def, "High-Def Exclusives" refers to additional content that's exclusive to the high-def release (and can't be found on a standard release)
