    Anyone else notice this while playing a movie that says it has DTS-HD MA 7.1?
    In PowerDVD Ultra versions 33196a and 3730d the information window shows the audio as DTS-HD 5.1 when it should be 7.1

    I noticed this on The Orphanage, The Golden Compass, and Shoot Em' Up.

    Because PowerDVD 7.3 Ultra doth not support 7.1. PowerDVD 8 Ultra does.

    I can play blu-ray discs with PCM 7.1 (3:10 To Yuma, Waiting, Good Luck Chuck) with no problems though. So it must not support DTS-HD MASTER AUDIO higher than 5.1
    I might just have to upgrade to version 8 then.

    Yes that's correct. It only has a max of 5.1 for DTS-HD MA because it can only play the DTS core. PDVD8 will fix that.

    Didn't someone figure out to "port" the 7.1 decoder capabilities of 8 into 7.3, or did I misunderstand the post?

    Yup. I did. Just copy the CL_DShowX.ini from the 8 folder to the 7.3 folder and comment out the HDDVD_NavX line.

    According to this post, the 4102 update for PowerDVD 7 Ultra now supports DTS Master Audio.
