The Fly BE CAREFUL

I saw The Fly 2 weeks ago, using my Playstation 3 console and outputting via HDMI to my Onkyo receiver.

I heard no audio problems during the scene you are describing. It could be your player that's at fault.

I have the BD30 and Denon 3808, and watched The Fly (DTS HD) past that point without a problem.

I couldn't get much past that but only due to boredom. Either I didn't give it enough time, or it's just not as good a film as I remember.

are you sure you didn't sit on the remote by mistake and pressed on the volume button?

but seriously, if you're on your third disc and no one else seems to be reporting this, this is most likely your equipment.

Thanks for the info buddy.

I have this title and the Panny BD-30 running into a Pioneer receiver and saw the movie recently with DTS bitstream. No probs here. Weird. My guess is there's some handshaking funkiness going on with the DTS bitstream from your player and your receiver. You may want to try other (Fox?) titles with DTS and see if you can replicate the problem. I know this is elementary, but I would still double check the BD-30s settings to ensure DTS out is set to bitstream. Also, I have the BD-30s "Secondary Audio" setting turned *OFF* - having this ON in the BD-30 appears to force the player to do a DTS-to-PCM downconversion, even if it's set to bitstream. I discovered this the first day I set up my player and discovered that discs with DTS were not lighting up "DTS" on my receiver. Really stupid, I know, but what can I say...Actually that might be your culprit. Try turning off secondary audio and try that section of The Fly again with the volume real low.

Good luck!

Thank you for this warning. I appreciate it and it might save someone's equipment.

If this is something that can be reproduced I think the subwoofer guys will all be adding it to their "reference" material...

This thread caught my eye so I had to chime in (my first post). I thought I was the only one with this problem. My dog also freaked out since it sounded like gunfilre. I'm on my 2nd copy of The Fly and it did the same damn thing with my bd30 and Onkyo 805 on the very same spot. Plays fine on DD though.

I was pretty spooked after that cause I really thought it did some damage to my speakers, but I think it's okay. I normally listen at a pretty loud level, so I was afraid to play any more MA disks after that. So far, The Fly seems to be the only movie I had this problem with. I did hear some other popping noises when I would un-pause another imported dts hdma movie, but nothing as loud as this. It's probably another known issue with the 805 receiver handling the audio codex.

No problem w/ my copy ...?
post #12 of 31
Interesting. All I could think of is to try the same disc on a different system and see if there is a problem also.

Thanks for the warning though I don't think I'll get to this movie any time soon. Bigger fish to fry!

I have The Fly and watched it on a Samsung BD-P1400 bitstreaming the HD-MA to a Pioneer receiver. No problems whatsoever.
post #14 of 31
I have this title, sealed and unplayed. Same goes with the Die Hard 2 which I just read about. Fantastic! I can't test DTS MA currently.
post #15 of 31
No problem here using the BD30 through a Pioneer VSX-59TXi. I checked all audio options on the disc through digital (both through co-axl and optical) as well as analog 5.1 and no volume "pop" at that point or any spot on the disc.

T.B.

I'd like to see this in HD but netflix doesn't carry it, at least not yet. I'll stay tuned cause I'm curious but if folks have tried more than one disc for this movie and there still is a problem, I'd definitely would be careful with this one.
post #17 of 31
I watched this disc last weekend and there was nothing wrong with the audio. Using a PS3 and Outlaw 950 pre/pro (optical in).

Got it from Netflix last week.

No BD for The Fly when I tried. Yet another netflix snafu!
post #20 of 31
So what happened? I honestly would have to think it is a system problem versus the BD being bad as no one is really posting they are having problems with that title.
post #21 of 31
No experience with "the fly problem", however, when i watched "die hard with a vengeance" today playing the DTS-MA (i have an onkyo 805 and a panny bd-30 aswell) i fast forwarded.

clicked one time, it fast forwarded normally, clicked one more time,
a strange buzzing noise appeared, i did this one more time and the same buzzing sound appeared again. Coincidence that this happens with the same setup as yours?
post #22 of 31
I got the same sound problem with the fly remake using the DTS MA. I own the panasonic DMP 30 and the onkyo 605. I have reported this both to fox and panasonic about it. have to wait until tomorrow to report it to onkyo.

I just had this happen with Fantastic Four on DTS-HD. It was indescribably loud - I can't believe my speakers survived.

I have an Onkyo Pro PR-SC885 preamp (Same as Integra 9.8)
Panny BD-30

Has anyone else had this happen with F4?

Was it repeatable? (i.e. if you played back the same scene did it happen every time like the OP experience with The Fly?)
post #26 of 31
which scene was it from in the fantastic four movie? the first one or second?

With The Fly, yes. Exact same spot each time. For those of us with The Fly problem it was the same scene/spot.

Not sure with Fantastic Four.

Thanks. I had picked that up from your post but was wondering if the Fantastic Four guy had the same scenario. If so, that suggests disc problems (like in your case) versus player problems.

Yes, it was repeatable. But I only did it once more - way too hard on the speakers.

Its from the first one. Its the first scene where Reed and Victor are negotiating in his office. Right around the time they shake hands on the 75/25 deal.

I didn't hear anything. but I will try later.

Sounds like you may need a subsonic filter because it sounds like you're inducing rumble feedback. How about laying the player on a thick rubber mat?
