Here's my whole exchange with THX on Facebook:Zolly Becker
: Media Director is nothing but a problem. Nobody wants it and all it does is confuse decoders in devices to screw up Star Wars.David Susilo
: How do you know that "nobody wants it"? Have you done a poll? Do you have concrete proof that it confuses decoders in devices? AFAIK
Media Director is a metada which is separate from audio video data so in theory it should not be creating the StarWars Saga problems that I've been documenting (more than 260 complaints so far, especially regarding audio dropouts, pixelization and "DTS-bomb")Zolly Becker
: Because the people whom THX means anything to, would rather be tortured to a slow death than let some program alter the settings on their HT gear.
Secondly The SW saga is the only BD on the market that has this metadata. It's the immediate variable that seems to be different than all other releases. "The more they think up the plumbing, the easier it is to clog up the drain."
I'm not some J6p. I know the score, and the score is 80hz baby.Andy Summers
: I've hardly watched the bluray and what I found was that I was watching one of many Laserdisc versions which beats all this hyped up STAR WARS bluray with wet towel be slapped around its face.THX Ltd.
: Hi Zolly,
To take advantage of THX Media Director, your home theater system needs to be Media Director enabled. Otherwise, it does nothing with the associated meta data. And even then, the goal of the technology is only to enhance the entertainment experience, keeping in mind things like personal settings and professionals calibrations -- always offering the option to override any changes. Expect enabled devices to start rolling out in early 2012.David Susilo
: With all due respect Zolly, from what you've written, you don't know what you're talking about. Blaming Media Director for the SW Blu-ray mastering hiccup is like blaming the cat walking in front of your house for the tsunami in Japan. I'm not a fan of Media Director, as THX can attest to, but put the blame where the fault is, which is the lack of QC and compatibility tests on Fox's team.Zolly Becker
: I'm right, your answers proved me so.Mackey Moose
: Do you even understand the English languange? He just proved YOU wrong!!Mark Levinson
: Save your breath, he clearly doesn't know how things work. His logic that metadata is affecting audio or video stream is laughable at best. Next thing you know he complains about CD-Text metadata affecting the quality of his audio CD and the label on his vinyl affecting the sound quality of his turntable playback quality.Zolly Becker
: Don't be mean. I'm just saying adding new things to HDMI makes things weird, it's just how it is.
It's not like I said the DNR'd piece of crap release of T2 Skynet Blu-Ray was good, or said all the errors in the 2004 Star Wars DVD were "creative decisions". Lexicon's BD player is just an Oppo on the inside and you guys approved it even when it's analog outs have a fixed rolloff at 100hz. See I know the score it's 1138- and the only crime is love, you dig.
