    I'm getting mixed reviews on this, so i just wanted to clarify.
    If i get a Blu-Ray player like the Pan bd30 or Sam 1400 which has analog outputs and internal truehd decoder. Can i hear truehd on my receiver with has 6 ch inputs? I have an H/K avr65

    BD-30 does not actually decode, it only bitstreams hi-def codecs so you can use it's multi-channel outputs for legacy Dolby Digital/DTS or you can have it send the undecoded digital stream via HDMI to an HDMI equipped receiver capable of decoding said formats.

    I do believe the upcoming BD-50 will decode the Hi-Res formats and send them via 7.1 analog outputs, so it may be worth waiting for that player if you
    don't have an HDMI capable reciever.
