I read that as it only decodes DD as 2 channel (i.e. the audio outputs).  I'd assume the DD would output via the optical out.

The biggest advantage of the PCH for most users is that it's not just a standalone player but it's a frontend for PVR software such as GB-PVR that gives you the familair GB-PVR menu structure on the PCH and the ability to do tasks such as scheduling recordings etc.

I guess the big question is whether it supports AAC-LATM, since many standalone players are all going for the same chipsets and all new DVB-T using it then we'll hopefully see a lot more implimenting this.
