I don't understand how Involve treats various encoded movies. I have movies encoded in DD, DTS, TrueHD and HD Master. Can the SMv2 decode these streams correctly?
SM (tell me if I am wrong) handles only matrixed surround sound.
SM does not know how to decode movies with discrete surround. DD, DTS, TrueHD and HD Master are discrete systems.
However, most movies have a 2-channel output (downmix) that is encoded in Dolby Surround.
Almost all DVDs have this, and now that the Dolby patents have expired, there is no reason to not provide Dolby Surround as the downmix.
