Ps3 Dts-hd Ma Support On The Way

Blatantly ripped off from engadgetHD, but of interest to a lot of people here:

AV Watch scored an interview with some of the engineers behind the frequent PlayStation 3 updates -- most recently adding BD-Live in 2.20 -- and uncovered details on what's been going on under the hood so far, as well as what to expect in the future. 1080 deinterlacing and DTS-HD MA support are definitely in the works, although no date is given.

I hope it's soon because, considering I use the PS3 for streaming DivX as well, if it was able to decode DTS HD MA as well I would be hanging onto it for quite a while (don't think my son will be too happy though as he just waiting to relieve me of it. :ninja: ) :D

If that was the case it would certainly get my vote over the bd30 when I'm in hk next week. Then I don't have to fight with my son to play cod4 online.. :D

I'll believe it when it happens, till then its just speculation in my eyes. My bravia promo ps3 is still in the box (waiting for MGS4) so full HD audio support and decoding for the ps3 would make me a happy chappy.

Awesome news, it shows how important easy-to-distribute software upgrades are for players. It does suck that having an Ethernet port on BD players is not required, hence distributing new firmwares can be a pain. Looks like the PS3 is now THE ultimate BD player, apart from no bitstreaming (as far as we know? :o:P )

Great to see DTS working with Cyberlink and Sony to get DTS-HD Master Audio on two platforms in the same month (PS3 and PowerDVD 8).

Oh and Kazz you'll be in for a treat, I watched ID4 on PDVD8 last night and um.... W O W B):D I felt like I was seeing it for the first time.

For giggles, I compared a couple of scenes in I, Robot BD to my DVD 2-disc release. Although suprisingly both the DD and DTS tracks on the DVD hold up well, they are no match for the full DTS-HD MA.

I'm beginning to wish I had plenty of money for a 7.1ch HDMI AVR with DTS HD-MA and DD True HD support.

All this talk makes my 5.1ch DD and DTS capable surround sound system seem like nothing :rolleyes:

Hmmm I might be tempted in this unit now.... I was thinking of the pana bd30 but a games machine to boot would be noicee......

It doesn't pass bitstream though does it it will be decoding dts-ma on board and passing as LPCM?

Excellent, I said all along it was definitely coming, didn't expect it anywhere near this soon though.

Arecsa ; After reading that link you posted in the other thread and Penton Mans insider info on it ;must feel good to be vindicated :) I too thought they would give the stand alones more time with dts hdma .

Rod ;without getting in to the ps3's chipset capabilities its a good bet it will decode the ma to lpcm. If it was bitstreaming Ide think that dolby truehd would be the first cab of the rank needing less processing power imho . Happy to be wrong though ;)

If this is indeed true i think i have just found my first bluray player.

I have been looking at the Pana BD30 but with this well this changes things a lot.

I'll probably change my mind each week until i buy though.

I wonder how this would be implemented - it would be great if the standard optical out to my 5.1 surround system would do it.

I expect it will be the handled the same as all other HD audio codecs on the PS3, decoded to LPCM and passed over HDMI. Unfortunately optical just doesn't have the bandwidth to cope.
