I use Bitstream; don't know of any other Lionsgate that I own; maybe Glory?

Know it is Sony with TrueHD.

OK, I remembered if you up-load you Blu rays over @ Blu-ray.com, with a profile, you may sort by Studio.

Glory (Sony & Dolby TrueHD) played fine.

The following 3 are All Lionsgate & dts-HD 5.1:

Thomas Misery ;-) Island Rescue would Not load.

Cold Mountain is fine, So Far

The Conspirator played fine for the first part, didn't watch the whole thing; the Good parts are Front-loaded in that film anyway...

The Pacific Blu ray 5 discs played with NO issues.

Letters from Iwo Jima Blu ray had some sound dropout issues after Pause with TrueHD track; had to select 5.1 DD track through pop up menu & re-select TrueHD to get sound to return.

Played in the LG with No issues.

Will prolly go back to using the LG for ALL Blu ray & HD DVD on this unit; don't have the Toshiba HD-XA2 hooked up just now.
I'm watching SM III and so far no issues with PCM or DDTHD. BTW with this disc the best option is probably PCM unless your AVR has a funky blue led that comes on with HD audio (PCM is HD, but for some reason Denon decided to not turn on the light since it is not a decoded lossless codec). Anyhow DDTHD should be safe also since it is primarily 7.1 DDTHD discs that have issues. Why you did not have issues with "Bark at the Moon" I have now idea. Anyhow if you were to internal decode DDTHD with this player i will output PCM 7.1 and negate being able to +PLIIx for the surround back channels. I assume if you place the player in PCM and select PCM that it will output correctly...yup PCM+PCM is correct. Select PCM in player then DDTHD on disc=PCM 7.1 in=bad

Sorry about Thomas the Tank Engine. Could be one that got missed, or your loader could just be picky. When I had problems with Lionsgate the discs would load, but have skipping and freezing in the movie. So I bet that particular title it an issue? Did you try reloading and/or cold starting? That one is in Amazon Prime, so no biggie. Still if someone can verify I can report it.

I would not expect ANY issues with ANY HBOs, but you never know. With LFIJ BD that would be a good case to use internal decode (though you will have the 7.1/5.1 issue). I own the HD not the BD.

If you could give me some timestamps that would help greatly as I don't want to watch this all the way through. I need to find some high action scened further than an hour in to test. Generally when I have seen a loader go it has more issues on the second layer than the 1st. That is if it is a dual layer disc (BD50 VS BD25).
