Zero issues, audio or video, on all my newest BD's, Total Recall, Finding Nemo and Brave
All played flawless through my 4 year old Yamaha RX-V3900 that's never had a firmware update.
My old fat PS3 doing the decoding and sending LPCM via HDMI. Dual HDMI display outs (Kuro plasma/Epson projector)

All my gear is at least 4 years old, only the PS3 gets regular firmware updates.

My steelbook edition...extended directors cut.

Of course you didn't have audio issues, there are issues only when bitstreaming Dolby TrueHD to the receiver. I don't think anyone one has had any issues when sending PCM.

Sorry, but you are wrong,

There are users still experiencing audio drop outs even after switching from bitstreaming to LPCM

I dont have a Bitstream capable player, but from what i've read other Yamaha RX-V3900 owners

(with Sony BD players) have no drop outs while bitstreaming

Do you have the latest firmware on your 110???
I did have dropout with the OPPO 83 same receiver though.
I wonder exactly what is causing this.
I'm sure we'll find out soon.

Hi eddieb187,

Yes, in fact I paused the movie, went out to the BDT110's setup menu and told it to do an update right then. But it came back saying that it had the latest version.

Reading the posts seems to indicate an inconsistant occurance from model to model and even in some cases within the same models. Not bad enough to return the disc but still rather annoying!

No I am not wrong, since this discussion is about Total Recall 2012.

Other movies - not relevant here.

May be the pairing with the Onkyo 705 and BDT110.
My BDT110 doesn't drop audio paired with my Onkyo 709. I wonder why???
If I play it in my OPPO 83 paired with Onkyo 709 all kinds of audio glitches.
I tried it again before and at one point the audio drops out altogether and did not come back.
I turned off the receiver and back on then audio returned.
My PS3 slim does not have any dropouts bitsteaming to an Onkyo 605 either.
I guess it's bitstreaming mostly and certain components paired that exhibit the issue.
No doubt something Sony did different in Authoring this disc.
Copy protection is usually the motivation here.

. . .

Hi eddieb187,

I think you're right. I went ahead and sent in a trouble report to Panny as although its most likely something Sony did its still probably up to the player manufacturers to come up with a firmware update to account for it. I'll post any info I get from Panny.

(with Sony BD players) have no drop outs while bitstreaming

Just keep in mind that I was only commenting on "Brave" - which played perfectly. I do not have the new "Total Recall", so I can't test bitstreaming it.
Update: I can now also report that "Finding Nemo" (2D) Dolby TrueHD also plays perfectly with our system - Sony BDP-S1000ES to Yamaha RX-V3900. No audio dropouts at all.

Maybe your right as my Oppo bdp 93 was riddled with audio dropouts but my denon 2500 bt which hasn't had an upgrade in the last 2-3 years works perfect.

geoffreyc switched to pcm on Brave and that fixed his drop out issues.
But when he switched to pcm from bitstream on Finding Nemo (Oppo player) he still experienced audio dropouts.
Regardless of title, all new DD TrueHD BD's have reported issues with multiple players and/or receivers
Whether some people think it's "relevant" or not, the common denominator is TrueHD on the latest releases.

Oppo players seem to have the most issues when paired with Onkyo AVR's from what I've read,
some players even within the same product line are producing diferent results (like Panasonic)
Then there are also other factors such as HDMI vs Analogue vs Optical, different region codes for BD's
throw Bitstream and PCM into the mix and there are literally hundreds of possible permutations.

I asked if he had tried Total Recall yet and he said he wont even buy it with so many complaints posted.

My point was that I have no issues with my player or reciever, and although using LPCM may reduce the chances of audio drop outs for many,
its certainly been proven its no guarantee for every player/AVR combo on every disc. To say otherwise would be a gross assumption unless some one tested every possible combo.

I think Sony should fix this issue and send out replacements.

I received this reply from OPPO customer service.
It appears they are aware of the issue.


Eddie,

This is a known issue with the current release of Total Recall which is affecting other players as well. Likely this issue will be resolved with a new release of the Blu-ray, and possibly our own firmware, but in the interim you will need to use LPCM for this film.

I am also sufferring audio drop out

First noticed it on Brave (US Disc) TrueHD
Secondly on Finding Nemo (US Disc) TrueHD
Thirdly on Total Recall (2012) HMV Exclusive - TrueHD

Equiptment

Yamaha V671 Amp (firmware 1.18) with Cambridge Audio 650BD Blu-ray player (latest firmware) connected with HDMI 1.4 compliant lead

Setup is set to bitstream on the blu-ray player.

Things like this are annoying as we are paying good money for these products and getting inferior releases

All my other 300 odd films play fine, only these new releases are having issues

Any help would be great

Played Total Recall last evening and experienced Dolby TrueHD dropouts numerous times. Length of time on the dropouts was variable, but never a hiccup with the video which was excellent. Switched my OPPO BDP83 to LPCM and no further issues. Audio was being fed to a Marantz AV8003 when I had the dropouts. This is the first time I ran into this problem on my Marantz decoding a bitstream feed since i bought it a few years ago.

Does the Netflix version have this issue? I was thinking of getting it but deleted it off my queue. No reason to see a remake of a classic movie.

Sony BDP-S590 to Onkyo TX-NR515 via hdmi (both with latest firmware)

Audio drop outs every 30-90 sec when set to TrueHD mode- unwatchable.
Zero issues after changing to PCM multichannel.

There should be a REKALL on this disc (and every other disc having these drop outs)

This movie has more lens flare in it than should be allowed in a dozen movies. There's scenes where a characters is briefly delivering expository, static camera position, and suddenly there's lens flare. WTF.

Here's an edit of 9m04s of lens flare from the movie. It starts with lens flare over the credits.

I made it 1:16 into that compilation before I quit in disgust. It makes JJ's use of lens flare look positively conservative.
