Same here. When I'm on audiophile I get audio glitches in The Watchmen
and The General
. In both cases the glitches happen at the same points in the film and are repeatable. Switching to re-encode eliminates the glitches and lets me play those movies with no trouble.
I'm on 2.05, but the glitches have existed on Watchmen
since 1.04. I was on 2.05 already when I got The General
so that's the only firmware version I've tested it on.
The wild card in this for me is that back on 1.04 and 1.05 I had some audio problems with The Dark Knight
while in re-encode mode and I had to switch to audiophile to get rid of them. Go figure. But the problems were different than those I was having with the other two films; instead of the audio popping in and out really fast it would just drop completely for a split second at a time, and it happened every ten minutes or so.
However, those problems occurred with my first 1600, which died shortly thereafter and I had to exchange. I haven't tested TDK on my replacement unit with the newer firmware yet.
