For most of them, I could rewind playback for a second or two, and then it would play over the chapter break, but for one of them, advancing to the next chapter and rewinding playback was my only option.

Also, "Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay" (BD) simply would not play the DTS-MA track without very loud static, but I read somewhere that this is a common issue.

I seem to be having more troubles with SD material than anything else these days.

I had this exact problem with my first disc of South Park season 11... but only the first day. I got tired of backing up and going forward again to get past the pausing so I turned it off after two episodes. Next day I turned it back on and resumed and never had it do that to me again for any of the remaining discs either.

HI all--what an amazing thread-so much condensed info here--everyone who has a blu ray player should read this thread just in order to undrstand the new audio formats better

so here is my question--since I have pgraded to 1.3 my player is at best selective about what it plays but more often than not it ejects both hd dvds and blu rays saying teh disk is unplayable. 1) do you think that going back to 1.1 or 1.2 would perhaps help this in that it seemed to work much better then and if so, 2) where can one find the older firmware?

this has been so disappointing as my older panny (which actually got a firmware update on 8.5) has never had a single problem--in fact it has taken residence in my main system again because the sammy plays so few disks...

thanks

You might check the disks that don't play for dust or fingerprints. I've found that the 5k is very fussy that way, in particularly with HD DVDs. I've put in disks that wouldn't load, or froze, took them out and cleaned them, and they played fine from then on.
post #815 of 885
I've only had a disc denied once. I also almost always wipe the discs pre-insertion also, so that likely has something to do with it.

Interesting, I don't play a lot of SDs anymore but we did watch Saving Private Ryan and The Empire Strikes Back during the past month with no playback problems. I've avoided having the unit play home-made DVDs since we have a specific generic $25 DVD player exclusively for those media.

I must've missed the posts to H&K 2's audio static... the only issue that I've read is popping when bitstreaming and even when I played it on my PS3 sending out LPCM to my Onkyo 605. The other issue I have with that disc which only one other member confirmed is a lock up at a specific point in the movie. It doesn't lock up when I use the PS3.

And it seems all the recent Paramont titles will lock up when you access the menu. I've also had an issue when fast forwarding for more than 8 seconds, causing the player to lock up. Another member also confirmed this.

Hello all, I am considering purchasing a combo format player. I am not sure if the bdup5000 will work for me as I have a HK AVR 347. Will that amp process dolby true hd and dts-hd ma via bitstream? Does the firmware 1.3 fix the issue where the player processes everything? Please let me know can get the player for 200 dollars.

Hello, this player can bitstream all of the high def codecs with firmware 1.3. I just checked and I don't believe that your reciever accepts bistreaming.

However, this player can also decode TrueHD internally and output it via the 7.1 analog outs which will allow you to get TrueHD with your current receiver. I think DTS-HD decoding will be added next firmware update (but not DTS-MA).

shawnmos thanks for the reply, I picked it up today for 150 dollars at BB on clearance. I have it updated to HDMI 1.3, Little upset that I jumped at the avr 347, as the 354 is so awesome. However, I only paid 300 for it so can't complain. Thanks for the feedback.

I dont know if this is a problem with the disc but, I just watched the movie transformers on BD and had quite a few audio drops and video stutter. Has anyone else had these issues with this movie?
post #821 of 885
netflix rental..played perfect
post #822 of 885
Just out of curiosity, and since I'm still new to my combo player... IF/WHEN we get 1.4 firmware, will there be a new thread started about it or will this one just get renamed?
post #823 of 885
I'm assuming a new thread will start, that makes more sense to me instead of sifting through old information when some members may only want info pertaining to the new firmware.

You are correct, a new thread would be started....
post #825 of 885
Cool... that's what I was thinking, but wanted to be sure. I don't always keep up with this thread and didn't want to miss if 1.4 got announced and people started talking about it.

I just tried another Transformer disc from Blockbuster and its flawless in new condition and the video stuttered again in the same spot. Right around the time when the hot girl pops the hood of bumble bee to check the engine. I just ran a cleaning disc on the UP5000 to see if it eliminates the stutter.
post #827 of 885
What cleaning disc??? The kind with the little brushes?? You may have jarred the laser out of alignment just enough, that certain times while playing a disc, it may not track correctly.

No it was stuttering before I used the disc. I am trying to see if the cleaning disc will help.

Very nice, that's probably more effective (since it's aimed directly towards the lens) than focusing compressed air into the open tray. It definitely sounds safer than the brush designs.

Good move Bori, you definately want to stay away from those "other" cleaning discs.
I haven't really heard of any other complaints about Transformers BD. Maybe you might want to try sending your player in for service if it's still under warranty.
I haven't had the chance to try the disc myself, as I've already been enjoying it on HD for about a year now.
post #831 of 885
^That might be the case for most dual format player owners (or they have long since written off this goofy flick).
post #832 of 885
AFI 100?... maybe not .
...but I usually have a soft spot for summer blockbuster type movies, plus I loved Transformers toys and cartoons as a kid.
post #833 of 885
As did I...but the movie's too ridiculous to keep coming back for repeated viewings (the robots in the backyard scene for instance, gah. the inept govt. agent, meh). That said, I fell victim to the hype and regrettably blind bought it last October.
post #834 of 885
The soundtrack is what makes it repeatable .
post #835 of 885
hi guys. any one of you have any problem with the sound of "THE ORPHANAGE" blu-ray disc ? the disc is new, no scratch whatsoever. player has got the latest firmware and receiver is Denon 3808.

when it starts playing movie via its DTS-HD MA soundtrack, i can only get sound from my rear speakers (5.1 set-up) and the sound were very very crackling n loud.

any idea ? i have straight away tested other discs (BR and HD-DVDs) and they all played fine.

appreciate any help.

thanks.

Blu-ray doesn't do it, HD DVD does. Strange.

I tested Pans Labrynth HD DVD and the DTS demo disc (both HD DVD flavor and BD). The pops are not very frequent, but they have only occured on the HD DVD side...none so far on BD. Of course, this is just a couple hours of testing thus far.

FYI, it seems to be a little random. I can't rewind and get it at the same spot each time.

Just picked up a Denon 3808ci last night and I can confirm the popping sounds on Pans Labrynth HD DVD. I threw in Independence Day and Juno Blurays to test the Master tracks on those and experienced no popping whatsoever. Looks like I may just have to replace my Pans HDDVD copy with a Bluray copy.
post #837 of 885
Yes, I also had the problem. As I listened further through the film, the pops became much more faint. I haven't tested this but some folks made that on a second run-through of the movie, the pops had vanished (or perhaps diminished greatly in volume).
post #838 of 885
I had them once, but now can't get them to return...not that I'm complaining

No problems here. I'm using the analog outs though.
