Not really, that will be a niche for certain user types. Not everybody will have the type of display that will support 24p. That being said, some will buy it as it will be the only surrent HDMI card to support this type of video output and 24p is the standard many have on their higher end displays.

Why are you posting info about the HDAV 1.3 in the Auzen Home Theater HD thread?
This is a comment thread about the exclusive info we released...

Supported audio resolution and sampling rate
16/24-bit / up to 192 kHz (Stereo playback)
16/24-bit / up to 96.0 kHz (Multi channel playback)
16/24-bit / up to 96 kHz (Recording)

Hope this helps.[/quote]

I'm curious why X-Fi can handle 192K/24bit for only stereo playback all the time? If that's the case, what about for 192K/24bit 8-channel Blu-ray disc audio? That will not be supported, am I right? It would be then a big weakness for this card.

You would be incorrect, those are analog specifications. Most are interested in this card to output Bluray A/V over HDMI digital.

To note, IIRC- there is no current HDMI audio format that has 24/192 in full surround sound mode. The closest you can get is DTS-HD Master Audio which is 24/192 in stereo and 24/96 in surround mode.
If you have seen a BD disk that offers 24/192 in full surround sound please provide a link..

Question

Please excuse the n00b question, but will the card allow me to plug the HDMI in from a stand-alone BluRay player and use the card as an audio decoder? I have a bit of a borg system and watch HD on my computer monitor (but all the software HD players seem to have problems).

Would the card support that?
