Thanks for all of your efforts with this one, Ralph.

I would be more patient but some folks are already getting their orders. Oh well and hopefully soon for mine!

How does the reviewer get the BR discs before they come out? I keep seeing commercials saying that both the DVD and BR discs for Ironman won't be released until the 30th. Forgive the naiveness of my post as I'm not a current customer of BR. I usually watch for the release dates of movies so I can check and see if they will be released on XBOX live as a WMVHD rental. But I do enjoy reading the reviews as I like to read about the 1080p transfers and the 5.1 audio.

Greetings,

They are forwarded early to members of the reviewing press by the studios so that our reviews can be posted prior to street date.

I can't wait for this movie. Along with the incredible hulk. But sadly, I have yet to purchase Transformers.

awesome review, thanks.

Might have to pick this one up

dang it, I need to get my theater finished!

I think all blu-ray movie fans now got "Iron Man" fever.... really can't wait the release.
post #40 of 197
Lucky for me what with the Ryder Cup and football this weekend to tide me over. After Monday night though, I'll really start climbing the walls waiting for this one. Obviously one of the biggest releases of the year not just for me but many. There is actually a thread on another forum with tons of posts just about resources folks are using to try to get it and then posts when they actually do.

Get ready to FW update your stand alone players. Again
post #42 of 197
Some problems will be reported and I believe I've already seen some on other forums about loading this BD. I have a PS3 and a Panny BD30. Nothing I've read so far includes those players.
post #43 of 197
And the non tech question of the thread: Any chance that the full Ghostface Killah video (or deleted scene) is anywhere on this release?

Will the issue with DRC being turned on be corrected on the new discs since there was a recall?

Greetings,

Its hard to say Robert. I am not certain what the extent of the problem was with player (s) compatibility. If it necessitated a re-encode of the audio/video then I would say yes. I suspect that isn't the case though. I will try and find out..


Cheers,
post #46 of 197
Thanks Ralph. The interesting thing is Paramount already shipped product not long ago and then decided to recall it. Don't know what triggered that but obviously something afterwards and it couldn't have been that much longer. They will take a hit for cost most definitely.
post #47 of 197
Ralph,

Any chance you can get hold of the new disc forthcoming? I'm a bit concerned as I'm unsure what Paramount has done with the second disc. It will fix compatability problems with all players?

They had plenty of time to QC the first to begin with then problems were reported with it by reviewers and it still goes out? Not sure what to make of the whole situation.

I've just finished watching this and the audio and PQ was great.

Any luck on determining if the DRC flagging is now fixed?

Thanks.
post #50 of 197
I completely agree with the reviewer on the 91/100 rating of the video. It's sharp, but the film grain (or digital noise? Was this movie captured on film, or digital cameras?) prevents it from being 100/100.

I guess perfectly clean-looking 3D animated movies have made us pickier than ever when it comes to video quality.

Greetings,

The updated disc arrived this morning. The DRC "issue" is still present. Again I want to point out that this is not really any problem as long as the dynamic range compression/night mode circuitry is turned off in your receiver/processor/PS3/player.

Thanks. But I'm surprised it wasnt' fixed, since they had to re-issue the disc anyway. Those with receivers that have DRC set to "auto" -- which is the standard for dolby true HD I believe, will have to remember to do this each time (if the receiver is turned off between playing it).

I wonder how many other dolby true HD discs have this flaging issue and it wasn't noticed, because it was not an action movie?

Greetings,

Once the option is turned off while playing a TrueHD soundtrack it should remain off. It remains off in my case. I can't speak for how mnay other titles may or may not have this issue but I have never noticed it before this one.

On the Blu-Ray release of Iron Man, there seems to be no English DD track, only TrueHD. So that means those of us with non HDMI receivers are SOL for surround sound unless we listen in French/Spanish?

No, when you select Dolby True HD and your player is set to output audio via optical/coaxial, you will get Dolby Digital @640kbps, which works with any receiver. It works with mine.

Greetings,

Miguel is correct. The lossy Dolby Digital core will play back through your system.

Strange. I get flat stereo unless I switch to Spanish/French, only then will my DD5.1 light up. My receiver is a Pioneer Elite VSX-27TX connected via optical to my PS3.

After watching the blu ray, I noticed there where small parts missing from the theatrical release. I went to the official site and the preview had a small sample of the missing scenes. Did I buy the wrong ult. edition or what?

Are you sure they were in the theatrical release. I've noticed more and more lately that a prewiew to a movie will have scenes that show up no where in the movie itself. Maybe that is what happened. All I've heard is the picture on the front of the newspaper at the end of the movie was changed due to legal issues with the actual photographer.
