    can mini display support all the same audio formats as HDMI (I assume it can)?

    I was interested in this product:

    which claims to able to pass LPCM over the mini display port, however I was unaware that OSX supports LPCM audio?

    What I don't understand is itunes doesnt even have dvd support. Well I have never played a dvd in itunes, why would we expect a blu-ray disk to play in itunes. It's not that I don't like the idea, it just doesn't mesh with what I see Apple do in the past. but that again, apple does surprise me once in a while.

    I must have been really excited. I've fixed it now.

    I suspect it'll be for DRM reasons, it it's even true. Blu-ray is much more intensive on parsing the OS for compliance.

    It has the bandwidth, but whether or not it can passthrough True-HD or DTS-HD is not entirely clear.
