Default DTS-HD Titles on HD-DVD?

I am looking into buying either Toshiba's lowest-priced HD-DVD player or the Venturer player at Wal-Mart or Target, and I was wondering about something.

I was also looking at getting Samsung's low-end Blu-Ray unit, but I have decided against it because it only gives you the "core" audio on DTS-HD titles--which means that I won't get the full effect. The question I have is this: Are there any DTS-HD titles in HD-DVD? And if so, what is the lowest-priced Toshiba player that can decode the entire DTS-HD signal and not just the core?

I am trying to do this on the cheap without having to resort to basing it off of my computer, because that's too limiting right now. I want to keep it as simple as possible.

True, but being that it is "out of print", so I didn't think much to include it.

As far as I know none of the Toshiba HD DVD players can decode the entire DTS-HD MA track internally. However, the HD-A35 can bitstream the track to a receiver capable of decoding it.

It's out of print already? Gosh lucky I got them on release day!

EDIT: Also, the UK (Studio Canal) release of Total Recall has DTS-HD audio.
