On AVSFORUM it has been confirmed that Microsoft's next firmware update for the HD DVD Addon will transcode the DD+/DDTHD sound to DTS (instead of DD), making the 360's digital output sound even better and just as good as the Toshiba HD-A1 standalone's coax/optical which no one ever had any complaints about. Way to make an awesome product even better! :thumb:

Very nice!

That's the way mine is connected for movies.

Any word anywhere about the sound discrepency being solved? I've gotta turn my speakers up at least 20 points higher than SD DVD and it's still quieter except for the occasional pure bass sounds. It's driving me insane. I don't have an AVS account, and the site seems to be a confusing mess to me, so I can't ask myself.
