And yes, I was able to change over to LPCM just for this movie, but that's a pain that I'm not willing to live with, so I sent the movie back. The worst part is I forgot to re-select extended cut when I came back to the movie after changing my settings, so that's why I never got to see that version. frown.gif

Wow, I've seen it all. You do realize it took you a whole lot more time and energy to return the disc than to push the audio selection button at the beginning of the movie. cool.gif

I always manually verify and select the audio track at the beginning of each film. It takes a whopping 10 seconds and I can enjoy the movie knowing I'm listening to the best audio track available.

All I can say is wow, here's the bs answer, but even more disturbing is they are sending me a full sealed copy so I can get a refund because I refuse to watch the movie in PCM 2.0 (Aka. Stereo).

I'll never buy a sony pictures product or a sony product ever again...

This Audio issue only occurs if the Blu-ray player is hooked up to an audio receiver or a home theater system. If the Blu-ray player is connected directly to the TV or the Blu-ray player, there should be no issue. SPHE is working with manufacturers on a possible firmware upgrade solution, but the issue can be resolved through a simple fix by changing the settings as outlined below.

PS3 Slim
From PS3 crossbar, go to:
1. Settings
2. Video Settings
3. BD/DVD Audio Output Format (HDMI)
4. Change to Linear PCM

Sony BDP-S360 / Sony BDP-S460 / Sony BDP-S560
From player crossbar, go to:
1. Setup
2. Audio Settings
3. BD Audio Setting
4. Change to Mix

Sony 790
From player crossbar, go to:
1. Setup
2. Audio Setting
3. BD Audio Mix Setting
4. Change to On

Oppo BDP-83 / Oppo BDP-93
1. Goto Setup
2. Audio Format Setup
3. HDMI Audio
4. Select LPCM

LG 370
1. Goto Setup
2. Audio
3. HDMI
4. Select PCM Multi-Ch

Panasonic BD-35 / Panasonic BD-55
1. Goto Setup
2. Audio
3. Digital Audio Ouput
4. Dolby Digital / Dolby Digital + / Dolby TrueHD
5. Select PCM

Panasonic BD-110
1. Goto Setup
2. Player Settings
3. Audio
4. Digital Audio Ouput
5. Dolby Digital / Dolby Digital + / Dolby TrueHD

I picked this flick up on Blu-ray during Black Friday week.
Watched the Directors Cut yesterday and experienced just a couple of audio dropouts.

Did Sony correct this problem and offer replacement disc for customers?

Benq W1080ST DLP 3D Projector
Sony BDP-S5200 3D Blu-ray Player
Denon X4000 Receiver
Pioneer SP-FS52 Tower Speaker x 4
Pioneer SP-C22 Center Channel Speaker
PSA XS15se Subwoofer x 2
