    I signed it, but added my $.02 that MLP 7.1 discrete surround at 24 bit/192 kHz resolution on all channels must be included in the specs. There can be room, if they add an extra double layered Blue Ray disc. I'd rather have the trouble of two discs per average length movie than compromised quality.

    Dan,

    5-6 channels of 24/96 utilizes 10mbps! Which is why I conceeded that 20/48 MLP would be accceptable, over 24/96 DTS. Which is also why we mentioned perhaps having 24/96 across the front speakers, and 20/48 for the surrounds/sides (which is one of the wonderful flexiable aspects of MLP, being able to utilise different bit/sample rates for different channels). That being said, I think 24/96 7.1 MLP is reasonable/desireable/doable for movies.

    24/192 is UNDESIREABLE because anything more going to audio than 24/96 could be BETTER served going to VIDEO. You will never pass a DBT hearing the difference between 24/96 and 24/192, especially in a movie mix. While the extra bandwidth would actually make a difference with video. the D-5 master is compressed 4X and still requires 365 mbps!!!

    It would be difficult to justify 24/192 even if you had a TERABYTE of storage and 500 mbps bandwidth, simply because the video is really that demanding, and will continue to benefit from every bit of available bandwidth.

    Number 341... And I suggested that with regard to HD-DVD players, the inclusion of component analog video outputs without any form of image constraint is essential.

    I assume The Home Theater Forum supports this petition.

    Why isn't this thread fixed at the top of the thread lists?

    I'm signature #8

    Keep your eye out for issue 61 from Widescreen Review [​IMG]
    I agree that this thread should be more important and fixed. It is equally as important as the DUMBING of the DVD format. We are trying to prevent the DUMBING of the HD-DVD format while it is still in the creation process. It is important that the consumers voice their expectations, demands, and helpful opinions.
    Please make your feelings known so that this thread should indeed have formal support. It would be great if Ron and Parker made the petition stand out. Please write to everyone, every magazine, every international DVD site, HT Forum, etc...
