OK, so I didn't get around to testing everything I wanted to, but I think this is still a pretty good list to start with. I tried to focus on the disks that I knew others were having problems with first. Unless otherwise noted, all the disks are HD DVD with the BH200 audio set to Primary pass-thru. I've got the latest April firmware (BH02080402F) and the 702 driver version. My setup is BH200 --HDMI--> Onkyo 705 --HDMI--> 2006 Panasonic 42" 720p plasma display. Here we go:
No Country for Old Men (Blu-ray) - uncompressed PCM audio, pop-up menu will work when the movie is paused.
Across the Universe (Blu-ray) - TrueHD audio, no flicker menu, pop-up menu will work when the movie is paused ... it would seem that on the two Blu-rays I own, pausing the movie has no affect on whether or not the pop-up menu works.
Into the Wild - DD+ audio bitstreamed and decoded internally, with previous March "beta" firmware I had a video dropout during the rafting permit scene (approx. 54:30-56:00). It is no longer there with new firmware. All menus work fine.
300 - DD+ and TrueHD audio bitstreamed and decoded internally, using in movie experience, audio set to DD+ bitstreamed and you could hear both primary and secondary audio. TrueHD not an option when using in movie experience. All menus and online features work fine.
Batman Begins - TrueHD bitstreamed and decoded internally, using in movie experience no secondary audio when bitstreamed. Switch audio option to MultiCh PCM, and both audio tracks were played. All menus worked fine.
Charlie & the Chocolate Factory - DD+ bitstreamed, in movie experience worked fine when bitstreamed. So, it would seem that if DD+ is selected when using Primary pass-thru, both primary and secondary audio work fine. But, if you're using TrueHD that's not the case. I'm not sure if this is a BH200 specific issue or if it has something to do with the difference between what is required to decode DD+ vs. TrueHD. Either way, I found it interesting and would like to test it on a Blu-ray bonus view (Profile 1.1) disk and see if the audio works the same way.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - DD+, all menus work fine.
The Assassination of Jesse James ... - DD+, all menus work fine.
Flags of our Fathers - DD+, all menus work fine, noticed a few audio dropouts. Actually they weren't so much dropouts as they were quick fades. It was like the volume would fade down and then pop back up very quickly; it all happened within a second or two. Not a huge issue, but a mild annoyance.
Alexander Revisited - DD+, all menus work fine.
Inside Man - TrueHD, all menus work fine.
Letters from Iwo Jima - TrueHD, all menus work fine.
Clerks II - just as others are reporting, this is a no go. The menu screen starts playing, but that's it. No selectable menus ever appear. Pressing play or chapter skip forward buttons on the remote do no good. So, that makes the movie unwatchable and the disk unusable.
DVE: HD Essentials - audio and video work fine, but problems with the menu do exist. I'm not sure if I'm having the same problems others have reported or not. Here's what happens: the initial menu will load and I can then go into submenus. But, that's where it stops. From the submenus, I can't skip right to a certain part, I have to choose the first option which is PLAY ALL. Also, once you've starting playing something, the popup menu is useless. It will open, but that's it. You can't select anything. So, while this doesn't make it unusable, it certainly doesn't make it easy, practical, or efficient. This may have already been asked, but has anyone tried this with the Blu-ray version?
All in all, I came away with two predominant thoughts in my head. First, I think LG has still done a great job with both the BH200 and the latest firmware. It's not perfect, but for all the variables it has to deal with, it's pretty damn good. The second is how much I've come to appreciate a well authored disk that minimizes all the fancy programming (be it HDi or BD-Java) and instead focuses on a quality audio/video presentation.
Hope this helps ... I'll do some more testing as time allows!
