I've seen a few posts mentioning audio drop-outs during seamless branching spots, and I also have this same issue. It is very annoying depending on the movie, most recently driving me nuts during Alien vs Predator 2. I have not updated my machine to the latest firmware yet. Was this issue addressed yet? If not, any chance it will be? It isn't like branching is a magic new technology...every DVD player I've had in the past have handled it with no problem, so I don't see why this player should have problems.
If there's no chance of LG fixing it, has anyone had any luck minimizing it or anything?
