(Okay, here I am posting a technical question to a general question board… what a geek.)
With the DVD audio standard coming out and my relentless need not to buy another DVD player just so I can enjoy the amazing audio performances, I’m wondering if there’s another solution.
I do have a Hitachi DVD-ROM drive and a Hollywood RealMagic 98+ decoder card in one of my computers. Would it be (theoretically) possible to upgrade the firmware on one or both devices so that I would be able to play DVD Audio? (I am guessing that the same laser could be used to read both.)
Also, how about upgrading the firmware on my JVC settop DVD player itself? Theorietically, of course.
