Total Recall 2012 - Page 3

post #61 of 338
Watched this last night and enjoyed it a lot (Kate Beckinsale MAY have had something to do with that). Also really loved the look of the movie a lot, including the natural lens flares provided by the custom flare lenses they had made. The audio had some kick to it as well. I'd buy it if hits $15.

Only issue I had was the aforementioned audio dropouts, but I have older equipment (Onkyo 605 AVR and Sony S570 BD player). Issues were easily remedied by changing the output setting of the player to PCM. Sounded exactly the same.

It's an easy change but its annoying to have to change anything just to watch a movie

I prefer Bitstream to my receiver as well, it's the heart of any home theater so why not have it do all the work

I wasn't getting any dropouts with my PS3 but the PQ doesn't look as good as my Denon so I switched Denon to PCM and all is well

Audio drop out for me was at the beginning of chapter 9. Audio would cut out and the movie sped up as if I had hit the fast forward button. Skipping to next chapter put everything back to normal. Player is a Sony BDP-S5000ES hooked up to an Anthem AVM 50v in bitstream. Both the Anthem and Sony have the latest firmware.

I agree
It affects some equipment and some lucky to not experience it--for this reason now I wont buy it
Its a disc issue for sure
hope they dont keep stuffing up discs like this
if I bought it and had issues like this I would return it
the studios would soon get the message if everyone who had issues returned it
surely so many years after the intro of bluray they can get basics like this right
My preamp decodes better then my player and thats why I use it in bitstream

I had major problems with audio drop outs and lip sync issues on this disc which came from Netflix. I have a Panasonic DMP-BP871 and it completely froze with about 10 minutes to go in the film to the point I had to pull the power on the player to eject the disc. This is the first time I had to do that on any rental from Netflix. I agree the original Arnie Total Recalll is the best, by the way.

Played around, changed to PCM, no drops, however sound not as good as streaming!

Yes and no that its a disc issue...it could be problems with the encode but its most likely something different they are doing that requires firmware updates

My concern is whatever is different becomes the norm and isn't just this disc

I had audio dropouts in beginning on the Oppo 93 so I stopped it and played it on my Denon 2500BT (transport player) I had no issue whatsoever.
post #69 of 338
I miss my 2500 but the DVD mech went on it and was way too much to get fixed so its sitting in box

You would think if it worked ok in your 2500 it would work in my Denon 1611

It should do but then again the 2500 were transport players, don't know if that had anything to do with it. But I'm glad I kept them they get used once a week and apart from slow loading times they still do there job well esp in situations like this.

Watched the extended version from a retail disk purchased from Amazon. I ripped to a Speedmenu ISO with ANYDVD HD to play on my PCH A-210 bitstreaming to an Integra 9.8. The audio dropouts were occurring every couple of minutes and were driving me nuts. After about 20 minutes, I couldn't stand it any more so I put the original disk in the old reliable Panasonic BD-30 Blu-ray player bitstreaming to the Integra. The audio dropouts continued but not as frequent.

Audio drop outs with Sony BDP-S790 Blu-ray Player and Onkyo TX-NR1009 A/V Receiver.

So am I guessing they are random? 22 mins in to the "directors" cut and nothing here
post #77 of 338
hmmm... I did not notice any dropouts on this movie (using a Pioneer BDP-05FD and an Onkyo TX-NR906). But I did encounter something else... Lip synching progressively got worse as the movie played, after an hour or playback, the sound was off (delayed) by a couple of seconds. It was like watching an old Chinese Kung Fu movie...

Just had one, spoke too soon. one drop and then the audio drifted by a mile

My player (Sony BDP-S360) has an option only for 2-channel PCM downmix, and I don't think Yamaha RX-V465 receiver has any settings that would tell the player to decode. If someone knows how to do that, I'd appreciate it.
Finally figured out a way to make Sony BDP-S360 switch to internal decoding. Changing the BD Audio Setting from Direct to Mix did the trick.

Had audio dropouts with my Oppo BDP 83 and Onkyo 709.
So I switched to my Panny BDT110 with the Onkyo 709 and did not have any audio or video issues at all.
I finished watching later in bed. I have a Panny BDT310 and Onkyo 605 and had major audio glitches.
Audio dropouts every minute or so. Very annoying.
Funny how one Panny from the same year had problems and the other didn't. Go Figure.
Or maybe it has to do with the older Onkyo 605?

I bet this has something to do with Sony's incessant disc copy protection schemes.
They tend to put everyting but the kichen sink on when it comes to their dics.

Wouldn't it be great if everyone just returned their Blu Ray????
I bet that would get the studio's attention.
post #81 of 338
No audio dropouts with Oppo 83 SE and Onkyo Pro 885 (analogs used).
post #82 of 338
I know everyone is talking about the audio, but in a rather unusual move for Sony (but not unheard of), they are using different video encodes worldwide for this release.

The Brazilian/South America release and the Czech/Polish/Hungarian/Turkish/Portuguese have the video encoded at 13994kbps (DC and TC) while the Russian/Chinese/Korean/Thai/Indonesia edition features the video at 19777kbps (DC) and 19404 kbps(TC). The main audio bitrate and movie lengh are the same across all these releases.

Can anyone provide a BDinfo scan or a bitrate readout of the US dics video encode?

HI ALL,

I didn't see this thread and started another which hopefully a Moderator will delete.

I watched it last night on my Panny BDT-110 feeding an Onkyo TX-SR705 and had I would estimate about 20 dropouts through out the movie. Rather annoying!! I thought it was defective but having read all the comments here it seems to be a problem with the disc. Not sure what to do now as I was going to return it to Amazon for another but that would be futile! Not the greatest movie but I would still like to keep it.

The dropouts were occurring for me when it switched to a different title and there were many titles. But the weird thing was that the rental had more issues than the purchased disc. I rented it from netflix and watched around 30% of it and noticed a bunch of quick dropouts. I liked what I saw so i wanted to see something from behind the scenes. And when i found out the BD in the store was an extended version, it solidified my decision to buy it and return the rental. (I purchased it from BestBuy.) So i watched the purchased disc the next day. It had even more branching titles but the dropouts were extremely rare unlike the rental. No idea why that was the case.

I used the BDT110 to an Onkyo 709 and it played fine.
Do you have the latest firmware on your 110???
I did have dropout with the OPPO 83 same receiver though.
I wonder exactly what is causing this.
I'm sure we'll find out soon.
post #87 of 338
Numerous audio drop outs on redbox rental. Sony BDP -S590 and Onkyo NR-609. Very annoying to the point I could not watch the disc. Thought my AVR was having problems or my player.

All of the dropout problems I've heard of and or experienced have been with 7.1 True HD tracks - Brave, Finding Nemo etc., and ONLY (at least from what I've experienced/heard) if your using HDMI for audio.
Also switching to PCM helped for me only with Brave - Finding Nemo still had problems with PCM, now watch those two with co-ax out connection and both ok, I know its not True HD but at least its better than dropouts.

My wife and I just got through watching the "Brave" 2d Dolby TrueHD blu-ray on our system (Sony BDP-S1000es to Yamaha RX-V3900 via hdmi). We thoroughly enjoyed the title - and it played perfectly - absolutely no problems with either video or audio - no audio dropouts..

Update: we just finished watching "Finding Nemo" 2D selecting the Dolby TrueHD audio and it also played perfectly - no audio dropouts.

This title is also affecting the rippers (which was probably the original intent by the studio, but players of official discs also seem to be collateral damage).

There are suggestions that the title has been split into a number of files and that there are frame duplicates and overflows between the files, plus the DD core of the TrueHD soundtrack may have been flagged or encoded as DD+.
