O.K. Thanks for verifying that. Just wanted to make sure we're all doing the same thing as far as sending the audio for the receiver to decode it.
"The mfg of the Chronos Bluray just emailed me back and he said DTS re-checked and said it was NOT a disc error and they believe its a HARDWARE issue."
One user (Jon Spackman) that also had the Integra 9.8 like I do was at firmware 1.05 versus my 1.04 and he did NOT have the issue with Fantastic Four. I may take my unit to my dealer for the firmware update to 1.05 to see if that makes the issue go away for me on "The Fly". I guess it's entirely possible that these particular movies have something different within the DTS HD MA code that the HDMI receiver chips don't like or recognize properly.
My Integra dealer also passed the info. that I gave to him onto their Tech. support so maybe he'll get a response from them.
I know it's hard to know who is telling us the truth but I'm guessing none of the company's will be quick to step up and say it's their issue to correct. At least if I do this upgrade and then retest the disk I can verify if a firmware update has some sort of fix within it's software for this vary issue.
Also if John Moschella does NOT have these issues with his Denon receiver then we can further deduce it may indeed be a potential "compatability issue" with our receivers HDMI chipset/code. What still is odd though is why it's only these certain movies that cause this POP. Is there differences in how the Movie companies encode DTS-HD MA from one movie to the next? It's pretty annoying that there are so many issues with HDMI technology as I'm sure there are many companies getting inquiries/complaints from users that are trying to use HDMI. It sure would be nice for once if a technology would make sure they are "RIGHT" versus "FIRST" when bringing their platform/ideas to market.
