Firm 2.30 for PS3


Awhile back I wrote about the lack of DTS-HD support on the PS3.  Well it seems that Sony has corrected that with the release of firmware 2.30.  Now the PS3 will internally decode DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio along with Dolby TrueHD and pass that along on the HDMI out.  It still will not transmit by bit rate for a compliant HDMI 1.3 receiver to decode, only uncompressed PCM.  That is fine as my Denon cannot decode the bit rate transfer anyways. By the way, uncompressed Dolby 5.1 and Dolby TrueHD has been stellar on Blu-Ray discs, it really drive your speakers.  The sound is engaging and deep.  I cannot wait to try out the DTS formats. It is a great time to be a HT freak.
