Does the Quantum Media server support Dolby Digital Plus?

Hi,

 

Looking at the front bezel of the Media Server, on the right side of the box on top, it says Dolby Digital Plus.


Does Verizon send DD+?  My receiver just shows DD, (it would show DD+, if it sees it).  I tried HBO HD, and several channels.  So my guess is Verizon isn't sending it?  

 

Anyone have an answer???

 

Thanks

Ron

DD+ is not directly backward compatible, although devices which include DD+ decoders can extract a compatible stream.  The specs I found don't explitcitly mention that the VMS (or IPC) support DD+ but some on other forums say its chip set supports it. Currently no DD+ is "broadcast" or as far as I can see is in Verizon VOD.

 

If the hardware does support it, a software update might be needed.

HI,

 

So I am assuming this answer is no.  Is anyone receiving DD+ from Verizon?  Do they support DD+?

 

Thanks

Ron
