Is it just me or this another product that seems to have only one reason for it's existence, ie. to further confuse an already confused consumer. As if there was a dearth of absolutely redundant codecs, DTS adds to the list of other such codecs, such as Dolby Digital +, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio.

What's next Sanjay, caffeine-free DTS-HD Master Audio Essential plus iron? :laugh:

I've been a longtime supporter of DTS but this really doesn't make sense. If they think the change is necessary, why not just do it silently? We really do not need another codec name added to the packaging.

Am I wrong, or does this appear to be a hardware-licensing issue? Perhaps a way to extend manufacturers the ability to include a DTS-compatible player-based technology in their Blu-ray players that doesn't cost as much as full DTS backward-compatibility?
