Panasonic BD30 with firmware 1.6 but also did it with firmware 1.4. Yamaha 1800, full range speakers and Klipsch subwoofer.
Have to laugh at folks dissing equipment being "over loaded", cables, etc. This is NOT a cable issue. It is NOT a POP. Those who have experienced it know exactly what is meant and once you do, you'll understand that pop is no where near the idea.
The problem with using the disk on other equipment is whose? Just who do I ask to play back a disk that can potentially damage their speakers? Would you want me asking you?
There is something in the coding, disk media, something, and it is at precisely the same spot for those of us having it with The Fly. It is no universal for all The Fly disk. There is a batch of them that have the problem. So just because The Fly plays fine in one set of equipment does not then mean it is our equipment. It means you have a good disk.
The disks that have the problem need to be put in a lab and tested to see what it is. Fox apparently didn't even bother but just sent me a replacement disk that does the same thing at exactly the same spot.
"...quick burst of bass." Yes but given my dog's response and quick fearful exit I believe it is full spectrum and not just bass. Clearly hurt her ears.
You're correct and that is why I mentioned the sound may very from system to system. It depends on the type of speakers, receiver/amps, and speaker settings that will impact the actual sound one hears. In my case it sounded like a loud bass pop probably because of my overall system settings/system.
Most importantly though for anyone wondering if they've got this issue is the sound is significantlly louder than what the moive track is playing at.
The good news for me is that I'm very confident that it's the disk that has the problem and NOT our equipment.
