Will the SMP pass through HD audio (7.1)

I am thinking of upgrading from a 5.1 to a 7.1 channel receiver. I’m specifically interested to see if the SMP will pass thru (HDMI) formats such as DTS-HD.

No, DTS-HD is not passed.   It only sends the DTS “Core.”  

WD Insists that DTS refuses a license.   Other players do it without a license.   Legality is another matter.   :wink:

What about Dolby Tru-HD?

Yes, it does pass True-HD, but I don’t know about True-HD 7.1 channel.  I don’t have any any media that has that.
