I have been planning on purchasing a Toshiba HD-A1 HD-DVD player next month. Last week I picked up Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow and it includes an DTS-HD track. I was concerned weather the player would pass the DTS-HD data to an external processor. I am planning on upgrading my old Yamaha RX-V995 next year so I wanted to make sure the player would pass that data stream to an external source. So I called Toshiba's customer service line and was transfered twice, and finally talked to someone in the HD department. All three people where very plesent and polite. But I never really got a straight answer about if the player could deal with the DTS-HD data. I was told that there was some audio issues with the player that are being addressed and that future updates should take care of it. It would be nice to call a company and get a straight answer and not guess work. The guy in the HD department could not tell me for sure if there HD-DVD player would output the DTS-HD data. I am still going to buy this player so I hope that there will be no problems regarding HD-DVD discs encoded with DTS-HD.
