What kills me is that there was a posting about this in the fall of 2007, and still, nothing. I'll believe it when I see it.

I don't think it will be too long before the PS3 gets the firmware update it needs to allow for bitstreaming of lossless audio codecs, and internal decoding of DTS-HD Master. I can remember when the...

I'm format neutral as well, but do find that I tend to buy the HD-DVD version over the Blu-Ray version if a movie is available in both formats. Not sure why; just habit, I guess. As long as it's in...
