I've found on occasion the theatrical codes seem a bit weaker when they make the transition to the home version.

German Codes for Gravity are out. But they don't work for me, never had something like this before..
Controller says it syncs and shows "Gravity deu", but there simply is no movement. Seat does not "boot up" and nothing happens. Switched to english track or any other movie, and everything is fine, motion is available.
Switching back to german Gravity track: Sync is available, but no motion..

Anyone can confirm this or had similar problems?

When I have this issue, i do the following in order and check to see if each step fixes the issue before going to next step.

  • Make sure nothing is on "mute". Does not hurt to check.

  • Reboot PC, or Controller, if using that.

  • Force the codes to download again. This one is a tad bit tricky and the rest of the steps need to completed entirely before testing again.

  1. Find the .xml file. It is called "FilmIndex.xml"
  2. Backup this file in case you make a mistake.
  3. Open the file with notepad, windows tends to pick IE.
  4. Ctrl - F and search for the film you are looking for.
  5. Once you find it, delete everything for that movie.
    The title will be between <Title> and </Title>. Above that, you will see <ID>###</ID> and above that <FilmIndex> Delete everything between this <FilmIndex> and up to and including the very next </FilmIndex> . If you do too much before or after, you can mess this file up or force the download of several movies. If the file is messes up, it could force the download of all movies, which is not something you want by accident.
  6. Save and then scan for new releases. It will think this movie is missing and re-download the codes.
Hope this helps.

D-Box updated the german codes fpr Gravity and now they sync fine :-)

What are you favourite D-Box motion code demos? I have added a "motion code demo mode" to my homecinema control which allows me to play specific parts of a movie one after another, so I can let my guests experience 20 minutes of full D-Box motion experience.. At the moment I have the following movies configured:
(Movie / Start / Length)

Any news on price? Any changes with actuators?

September seems like a Cedia announcement.

I've always wondered why it wasn't done previously but glad to see it. There seems to be an acceleration in titles right now and I couldn't be happier.

Yes, it is. If they proceed with the current speed of resyncing discs, it is a maximum of one year until the code is out for the german disc.... at the moment, about 1/3 of the ~90 discs I sent in are synced in more than half of a year..

Wow ! That's why they re-sync my discs so slow , cause u send them 90 discs at once time ! But there is a new rule , they are just finish two discs a week for one customer ! Probably better this way !

Who else here is closely monitoring Atmos and how it may (or may not) work with D-Box? Asking support, I have not gotten confirmation if it will work. Support only commented that D-Box needs the DD or DTS lossy bitstreams to sync. Nothing we don't already know. Perhaps I could ask Oppo if my BD player will still output both with an Atmos BD, but ultimately, it seems we just need to wait and see.

Page 13 of the Dolby Atmos Whitepaper shows that the encoded track for Atmos is different than the 5.1/7.1 track. So my guess would be that D-Box would have to manually re-sync to those Atmos tracks. We haven't heard anything from D-Box regarding this audio analyzing receiver that will sync based on the audio analog waveform. So, hopefully, whenever that's no longer a pie-in-the-sky product, it won't matter how an audio track is encoded.
