I just ran into a couple audio glitches with the standard def. DVD of Star Wars Episode III. It had been running for a couple minutes in chapter 2 when the audio suddenly dropped out for a about half second and returned. I back up and played this spot again, and it played through normally this time.
A little while later I used the "|<<" key to back up to the beginning of chapter 2. The audio played for a couple seconds, then I heard another short dropout. I hit the |<< key again and the same thing happened. I hit it a third time (each time starting at the beginning of Ch. 2), and this time the audio did NOT drop out -- it played normally.
I've seen all the audio issue posts here, but I don't remember seeing any that reported audio dropping out with a regular DVD. This DVD is absolutely pristine.
I was using the optical output with the 5000 set to "Bitstream Audiophile," and was listening to the DD 5.1 track.
I have since been watching the Casino Royale (2006) BD, and I've had zero audio issues.
