Its because its a Dolby TrueHD EX stream. The A35 cannot bitstream any Dolby TrueHD EX streams. Hopefully a firmware update will fix this issue in the future.

Usually you just look to see if it has a Dolby Digital Plus EX track then that will indicate that the Dolby TrueHD track includes the EX. Some others that I can think of are Lady in the Water and The Perfect Storm. Theres really not that many thankfully.

Does this affect the XA2 as well?

Coaler: no problems with Bourne Ultimatum (yet), but I haven't watched it all the way through. I basically popped it in to check out the PQ and special features. Does yours play at all or does it crap out part way through the movie?

It played the universal intro before the menu where it fades to the HD DVD logo. I was on AVS and some guys recommended "intializing" the player. So i did and reset all my settings how i want them again and now it seams to work. i haven't watched all the way through though but i got to the movie finally.

I'm not sure since I only have the A35, maybe someone else can verify who has one.

Add Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone & Chamber of Secrets to the TrueHD EX crowd.

I have a Toshiba HD-XA2 that bitstreams & I've played "Top Gun" Dolby TrueHD bitstreamed & it plays perfectly. I've also tried the DTS-ES track & the Dolby EX track & they play perfectly also.

I watched it all the way through with the Dolby TrueHD track with no problems. I just sampled the DTS-ES & Dolby EX tracks & had no problems.

I also watched Happy Feet with the Dolby TrueHD track bitstreamed & again played perfectly.

I had some problems with the HD-A35 & exchanged it for a HD-XA2 & downloaded the firmware update for it to bitstream & have had no problems with the HD-XA2.
