    This is as barebones as the HD DVD (which was one of my 5 free) and will likely be a port of that transfer with a bump up to DTS-HD MA. I'll pass until my HD-A30 craps out.

    If this is indeed a BD-25 as listed, then it's even worse. The HD DVD was a 30G disc. Following the usual Uni practice with these ports, to make room for the lossless track and fit the whole thing on less digital real estate, image detail will have to be sacrificed.

    But I'm sure the lossless fanatics will be happy.
