Thank you for your e-mail.
The information printed in the review is slightly incorrect. The Showcase Processor does not have MLP decoding, and we will communicate this information to the reviewer. One of the important differences between the Showcase processor and its top-of-the-line sibling, the Home Theater Standard 7.1 is that the latter unit is fully hardware upgradeable as well as software upgradeable, while the Showcase is simply software upgradeable. Therefore, any hardware changes, be it fire-wire, DVI, or anything else, would be applicable only to the HTS 7.1.
