1gkar: I am looking to purchase a Blu-ray drive -not sure if it will be a BD writer or reader at present- & I notice they all have a version of PowerDVD7 that restricts audio to 2-channel. The question: in the past, most crippled versions still allowed SPDif to work. Is this still the case, or is an upgrade to Ultra required. Cheers.
1gkar: Thanks for the reply, datahawk. How much did the upgrade from the crippled version cost?
Well, I was hopeful. Nice AV gear, BTW.
