The dvd has DTS & DD, but I haven't been able to find out if the HD versions will have better sound. PCM or DTS HD would seal the deal for me.

From their website, it looks like the HD versions lose the DTS track, but instead has "dolby true-hd 5.1 digital surround sound". Wouldn't that only apply to the HD-DVD version? I have 69 Blu-Rays & none have that sound, but a few of my HD-DVDs do. With no HDMI on the 360, I can't get the True-HD sound now, but what bitrate is it? There's also no display on the 360 that shows you that info. On the PS3, the DTS HD tracks are 1.5 MBps & the PCMs are 4.6 or 6.9 MBps. Just wondering how the True HD compared.

So that says the Blu-Ray version has True HD sound that only the PS3 can play? Will this be the first Blu-Ray with True HD, or will they call it PCM 5.1? I thought the True HD was an HD-DVD copyrighted sound? And I love the way both formats are so dependent on the game consoles- True HD plays on every HD player except 360, and only on PS3 Blu-Ray.

"Legends of Jazz" has TrueHD. The codec's fair game for either format, despite there only being one title (at least for the moment) using it. I think the appeal of PCM is that it's fair game and can be used in just about any Blu-ray player, while TrueHD has a license fee associated with it.
