Finding Nemo - Page 3

post #61 of 135
Thanks for the coupon info.
I'll be looking for the best deal as well.
This is a worthy title to pick up. My g/f loves this movie and we've been waiting forever.

Will UP 3D have the same $5 off discount as well?

Where?

EDIT: I found it here.

How do I get a coupon for Finding Nemo 2D?? and where can I redeem this coupon? Many thanks in advance!
post #65 of 135
AFAIK, they only have the coupon for the 5 disc 3D version...
post #66 of 135

Thanks for the reminder about the rebate. I'm going to use this with UP and Nemo by sending one to my in-laws address and one to my parents house. I already sent one in for Brave so that dq's my address. smile.gif

You can only do one per address? I already did one for Brave.

Thanks

Picked up the 5 disc version at Target and used the $5 coupon.

Just as feared, and just like Brave, I'm experiencing audio dropouts on all 4 of my players.

Done with Disney new releases until they sort this. mad.gif

This is discouraging...

...problem is, unless everyone takes their discs back, demanding money back for faulty manufacturing, they'll just keep on doing it.

It is discouraging.

All my players (both Oppos, the Panasonic and the Sony) are current in their firmware. Even the Marantz AV7005 is current. Even changed the HDMI cable just to rule that out as the problem. Can try running the 7.1 analog from the Oppo 83 to the Marantz and see if that cures it, but one really shouldn't have to be arsing around at this point in the game just to get a disc to play as intended.

BTW, I have numerous TrueHD 7.1 discs from Asia (I like HK and Chinese flicks) and not one has ever been an issue. What is Disney doing different to the mix?

Have you tried decoding and sending LPCM instead of bitstreaming?

Most people say that this seems to work - which would also seem to indicate that the problem is decoding in the AVR or pre since a player could certainly read-send (bitstreaming) faster than it could read-decode-send (LPCM).

This surprises me, as I always figured that AVRs would have more decoding capability.

If there is any seamless branching going on, I've always read that the DTS-MA codec handles the branch changes without a hiccup. Since Disney is doing this with Dolby TrueHD, that may be why there are dropouts. Just a thought.

Branching shouldn't be a problem with TrueHD either. Blade Runner has TrueHD and branching.

Disney is obviously doing something that either pushes the envelope and many AVR manufacturers are unable to deal with - or they are breaking the rules (but in a way that player manufacturers seem to be able to deal with).

Sending LPCM solved the problem, but something's not right if this has to be done in order to watch the latest two Disney releases. I did have the same problem with both seasons of Walking Dead, which is also a TrueHD 7.1 mix.

BTW, this happens on both the 2D and 3D discs.

Looked amazing on my Samsung 9000 series 75" set. cool.gif

Hope this issue gets sorted. Not going to put out another large sum of money on a new AVR because someone decides to change something somewhere in the audio department.

Now on to Dark Knight Rises.

I had been running bitstream for who knows how long and now all of a sudden earlier this year I had problems with it. I eventually figured out that switching to LPCM was the fix, or "a fix", but of course I can't tell if I'm running TrueHD or whatever. While there is no perceptible audio difference it still ticks me off a little.

Might be something as simple and stupid as not placing the branched files in consecutive order on the disc.

If anyone has the capability, rip this movie to HDD and see if playing it from HDD solves the dropout issue.

Bought this at my local Safeway grocery store for $26.89 out the door. It's the collector's 3 disc 2D set in a DVD case. If I were to buy it from Amazon, it would been over 6 dollars more for the same version, and I would have to wait 2 or 3 days for it to get to my house....

Not really! There was and is a coupon.

Really? I was told here that the coupon was for the 5 disc version only....? confused.gif
post #81 of 135
The coupon is for the 5-Disc set. YMMV when using it for the 3-Disc set.
post #82 of 135

I bought the 5 disc combo, not that I needed the 3D version, But it was the only edition available in a limited embossed Steelbook,

and I already have every other Pixar bluray release in a limited edition Steelbook already, so I had to get this one too.

 

Got the Dark Knight Rises Steelbook today too

BTW, no audio drop-outs for me,

My PS3 decodes to 7.1  LPCM to my Yamaha AVR (RX-V3900) bitstream schmitstream tongue.gif

I have watched this movie three times now and have not had any dropouts, same with Brave. I am bitstreaming form a Oppo 83 to an Onkyo SR707, no where near the latest tech.
post #84 of 135
Just got done.......amazing! All around mind blower. Darla tapping the glass....... eek.gif

I had no dropouts on this viewing. I did have a drop on Brave. I bitstreamed both titles.

I watched this with my 2 year old tonight (well, I watched while he mostly ran around but...) Did anyone else find some of the initial ocean scenes a bit.. foggy? I think this was done on purpose since, well its the ocean and not always clear, but I expected it to be razor sharp from the start and it wasn't. Once nemo is in the tank, its very clear (obviosly due to the tank having clearer water than the ocean). Overall it looked good.

In a word, yes, it is supposed to be "foggy". "Murky" is the more appropriate term, I think. They had to balance the believability of being underwater with the goal of making a bright and colorful charicature of it. This was very unlike Toy Story and A Bug's Life, which essentially existed in a vaccuum with no visible atmosphere to obstruct or refract light around the characters and the environment.

Do all copies of Nemo on BD come with a free ticket to Monsters, Inc in 3D?

I know the Best Buy copies all have a label on them indicating that one is inside but the one I got from Amazon did not.
post #88 of 135
when you enter the enclosed code into Disney Movie Rewards, DMR will give you a link to print out the ticket.
post #89 of 135
I entered he code and got 2 free tickets!

Try it twice, it just might work for you 2!

Ok, something screwier than hell is going on with Dolby TrueHD lately. After Brave and Nemo, I received The Assassins today from my dealer in Hong Kong (it's a 2012 Chinese movie). Has Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio. Same problems. Dropouts here and there. Never had issues with TrueHD until recently. Nothing in my setup has changed (other than adding the Oppo 103 and the Samsung 75" tv). Will probably spend the weekend changing my Oppo 83 back to 7.1 analog connections and leaving the 103 with HDMI. Not that I really want 8 extra cables in the mix of snakes, but seems like the only choice right now. Very odd. Anyone have any theories?
