Receiver to pair with PH?

DD+ is currently downmix to Stereo, it should be able to passthru as DD,
but there is a bug in Sigma library.

DTS HD is currently passthru as DTS "core". DTS is never decoded on board. However, some manufacturers may choose to design in a DTS decoder chip, or they may license DTS decoding.

HDMI1.1 and HDMI1.3 is not just a software thing, you need a HDMI1.3 PHY.

Given the above ability to handle DD+ and DTS-HD, there is less value in having HDMI1.3.
Furthermore, SMP8634 does not support "deep color" as some may claim, but is limited to 24-bit colors which is more than enough with HDMI1.1

Re: Dolby Digital 5.1
ccb Wrote:Mighty,

Are you saying Popcorn doesn't output Dolby Digital 5.1 from a DVD rip? I am using a Yamaha Dolby Digital 5.1 receiver.
I was talking about Dolby Digital Plus. Dolby Digital can easily passthrough on SPDIF as well as HDMI.

Are you saying we will get 5.1 DD out of a DD+ stream once the bug is fixed (if, of course, it is fixed)?
That would be nice! Much better than stereo pcm, imho.

Hi Syabas, can you confirm:
    * Dolby Digital Plus will be passthrough as DD (once Sigma bug is fixed);
    * DTS-HD will be passthrough as DTS-core.

So then in both cases we will be able to hear 5.1 audio from a DTS / DD enabled receiver. Correct :?:

Alternative :
ANy indication when PCH will support HDMI 1.3 ? I think it is a pity that we all focus on HD-video and then ignore the HD-audio part in 5.1 Sad

I think this is already supported; correct me if I'm wrong (I don't have a receiver yet, so I can't test it).

If you mean the A100, the answer is never. I think they are working on a next version, due to ship this spring, which will feature hdmi 1.3.
