ah one request by our engineers maybe one with a scaler can check out this thing

- Added Auto YCbCr colorspace.

we have no scaler so it is very hard for us to check.
Please let us know if it is switching correct to BT.601 or BT.709

Regards,
Werner

I can see quite a few angry C200 owners when the Bluray licensing issue hits the general discussions.

Wonder how this happened? But it's pretty cool!!
Guess I'll be staying on this version for while...

I definitely wouldn't waste my money on a C200 if I were in the market for a new player right now.

It would appear that this new A200/A210 firmware brings Blu-ray disc playback, which is supposed to be a feature exclusive to the C200 that helps justify the additional cost for that player. The issue with it is some C200 owners will not be happy about paying the extra money for a feature that they could now get with the cheaper A200/A210 players.

EDIT: My assumption was incorrect. Please read the post below.

nope... it doesn't play retail BD and never will (even if you attach a BD-ROM drive to it via USB or internal SATA).

If the A210 can now do full menus, IMO it's the best package. No fan, etc.

So it would support the full bluray rips off the hard drive but not play them off an external usb blu ray player? Is that accurate?
Those images are gonna be huge...time for another hard drive lol

Good to know. I was forced to read between the lines since I don't have an A200/A210 player to confirm my assumption.

you can't downmix TrueHD, you can only downmix the core or extra AC3, so if as example a mkv has a truehd audioline then you won't be able to downmix because mkv doesn't allow to carry a core inside the truehd

Please read Post #11 of this thread.

Following the requirements as aforementioned, during playback, press the TITLE button and select Audio and look for the track "Dolby Digital AC3 Core".

I can see it when playing back BDMV/BD ISO/M2TS files.
