Rented the BD from Netflix.
Receiver: Denon AVR-3808ci
Blu-Ray Player: Panasonic DMP-BD35K
Using bitstreamed audio, DTS-HD MA in this instance.
Popped in the disc, started watching. Got absolutely horrific distortion and excessive volume out of my rear speakers during the introduction logos followed by loud background noise and no center channel output during the film. Tried changing to a different audio track but DTS-HD MA was forced.
Tried a Finding Nemo DVD in my BD player to confirm that my player and receiver could still parse 5.1, which went fine.
Then played The Incredible Hulk BD (DTS-HD MA), which also went fine.
Updated the BD player to the latest firmware revision, still no dice with Harold & Kumar.
Changed the audio from bitstream to player decoding and watched in DTS. The audio was mostly fine this way, but I too experienced lots of popping.
This is the only disc I've encountered that had either the distortion/center or the popping issue. Has anyone else experienced the former on this or others?
