switched to pcm on Brave and that fixed his drop out issues.
But when he switched to pcm from bitstream on Finding Nemo (Oppo player) he still experienced audio dropouts.
Regardless of title, all new DD TrueHD BD's have reported issues with multiple players and/or receivers
Whether some people think it's "relevant" or not, the common denominator is TrueHD on the latest releases.
Oppo players seem to have the most issues when paired with Onkyo AVR's from what I've read,
some players even within the same product line are producing diferent results (like Panasonic)
Then there are also other factors such as HDMI vs Analogue vs Optical, different region codes for BD's
throw Bitstream and PCM into the mix and there are literally hundreds of possible permutations.

I asked if he had tried Total Recall yet and he said he wont even buy it with so many complaints posted.
My point was that I have no issues with my player or reciever, and although using LPCM may reduce the chances of audio drop outs for many,
its certainly been proven its no guarantee for every player/AVR combo on every disc. To say otherwise would be a gross assumption unless some one tested every possible combo.Edited by PioManiac - 12/22/12 at 6:32pm
