2. Would changing the sound mode on the Yamaha from "Straight" to DTS Neo:6 or Dolby Pro LogicIIx invoke rear surround derivation even with the player set to send LPCM? Would I need to tell the Oppo not to send 7.1 but only 5.1? I don't want to have to manually go in to Setup on both machines to switch things back and forth - particularly since having the rears simply duplicate the sides is fine with me on 5.1 films.
1.Your Oppo BR player "Downmix" feature selection is ONLY for its multichannel ANALOG output, not for he digital HDMI out...that, it's the domain of your Yamaha receiver...from the audio mode you select in your receiver.

2. And yes, it would. It don't matter what you select in your Oppo between 5.1 and 7.1.
* If a Blu-ray is encoded with a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 or DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio soundtrack your Yamaha will decode it as is.
If it is a 5.1-channel audio soundtrack, simply select Dolby PLIIx or DTS Neo:6 ... to have those two additional back surround speakers activated.

► And simply set (select) the HDMI Audio Out of your Oppo BR player menu to "Bitstream".
Your Yamaha receiver is doing all the decoding from what your BR player send to it as it is encoded on the disc.
If you select LPCM in your Oppo, then your Oppo is doing the decoding internally, and your Yamaha is reproducing it....but in your case there is no need to select LPCM. It is more for legacy receivers without Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA sound decoders, and the odd problematic Blu-ray disc improperly encoded by some studios (very rare).

But if you prefer LPCM it's fine too; just use your Yamaha receiver's audio modes (Listening Mode) with 5.1 audio soundtracks ... DPLIIx or dts Neo:6 on top of multichannel PCM.

With LPCM selected in my Oppo, and with its downmix setting at "7.1", 5.1 disks automatically play the side surround signals out the rears as well with the AVR set to "Straight" (no PLIIx or Neo:6 matrix decoding).

With Bitstream selected in the Oppo, the rears are silent on a 5.1 disk unless I activate PLIIx or Neo:6 matrix decoding. As soon as I play a 7.1 disk. the AVR reverts to "Straight" - and stays there even when I play a 5.1 disk until I once again manually select surround decoding.

Bitstream thus requires more work just to keep the rears playing. And in any case I'm not a fan of DSP soundfield generation, which tends to sound false to me - just like artificial 3D - which is what's used in most films - looks like animated "pop-up books" to me. If it was shot with one lens, show it in 2D.

At least having the rears play the same thing as the sides on 5.1 disks mimics what I would hear in a movie theater, with pairs of surround speakers - all playing the same thing - arrayed down the side walls.

I'll stick with LPCM and my 7.1 downmix setting.

I see; it works for the HDMI Audio Out too...LPCM down-mixed to 7.1 channels. >>> I am going to try that too, and see if it sounds as good or even better than Dolby Pro Logic IIx.

Thanks.

Ok, time for me to backtrack. I just went down to my theater to verify that I had set my multichannel speaker setup to 7.1 downmix and found it set to 5.1 - and my rears were silent. So much for my theory.

I found that the only way to get surround sound from the rears on 5.1 material is inside my AVR, as you had said. It's a Yamaha Aventage RX-A1030 (two models back - which I just got new from Amazon, almost half price because of that fact).

Go to Sound Program, Surround Decode, press the up arrow to configure it, and while on the line for surround decoder press the Options button on the remote. This brings up a new menu, one of the entries being Extended Surround. Click on that and change it from Off to PLIIx Movie. This applies to all inputs.

Then, to keep pressing the Blu-ray Scene shortcut button from defeating that, go to that Scene, press up to configure it, and then click Save. Once you've saved it, it won't defeat the surround decoding.

Now, even in Bitstream, putting in a 5.1 or 7.1 disk will give you sound out of the rears, and it automatically shifts between the two modes.

I may have heard slightly better sound from Bitstream than from LPCM in switching back and forth, but there were so many steps in between. and there's expectation bias, so I'm not sure.

It makes sense to me to leave the audio in its original format as long as possible, so I'm now leaving the Oppo set to Bitstream except when and if a disk has authoring problems, in which case I'll switch to LPCM output.

Talking Database Update to include XMEN DOFP: Rogue Cut?

Hi Lee & Ralph,

I know you both are busy, that being said, are there any plans in the future to include X-MEN Days Of Future Past: Rogue Cut to the review database as a direct link to the review (as the other movies link directly to their respective review) ?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Be blessed.

Greetings,

Yes! My apologies, I have been remiss in keeping up with the weekly updates to the database. I will get everything caught in the coming days (including X-Men DOFP - The Rogue Cut )

Thanks for keeping us on our toes!

Ralph,
Hello! Long time to miss your updates. I have updated the work in progress of making your movie database table viewable and I have promising results.

Basically I exchanged highlight coding on your post...Example:
[U][B]Spotlight Blu-ray Reviews[/B][/U]
and exchanged it with or added the jump link. Example:
[b][aname="Spotlight"]Spotlight[/aname][/b]

The jump links work in conjunction with the table code.

Did this action A~Z; Spotlight, Numbers, 3D and broke down the table to view cleanly.

It didn't take too long to adjust the orginal first post, but the hitch is not getting a Database error upon updating..
I've recieved this error twice in my test post forum in which I viewed and bounced around cleanly until I deleted the entire post to redo at such time as the server is not loaded with our fans.
SUCCESS AVS Forum Updated Movie Database Potts/Weber

Attached is the BB Code unparsed in a text file for your review.

Enjoy!!
PS Favorite movie to date is Tomorrowland. Keep up the great work.

Welcome to the Revised Blu-ray Review Database!!

Greetings,

The Blu-ray review database has been revised, thanks to the hard work of forum member Woobieizer.

There is now an alphabetized table at the top and bottom of the listing that will take you directly to each group. This makes searching/scrolling much quicker. Thanks again to Woobieizer and to all for their support and suggestions.

Under A or T?

Thanks for the database update and for all the hard work you guys put in! Much appreciation!

Just a quick question, would The Avengers: Age Of Ultron be listed under the letter A or the letter T?

Thanks in advance.

Best

The link in the database to the review of "Once Upon a Time in America Director's Cut" is not working properly. Other links nearby such as "Oblivion" work fine, so I assume it's not my computer.


Can you tell me if this was the 229 minute or the 251 minute version? I presume the former. Thanks.

Dell desktop running Windows 10 and both IE10 and the new browser Edge(?) - both give the same result, which so far only happens with that particular title. All others work so far. Just one of life's little mysteries/irritations, I guess. Don't trouble yourself about it unless it happens with other titles or to other people.


Thanks,

Lol, no sweat. ...I'm like you...just curious why it happens like that...to you and not me. ...And you're probably right; it'll eventually happen with other titles, lol. ...And with different people, lol.

* This is still a great great Database of Ralph and Lee's Blu-ray movie reviews...I like it, a lot.

@jencas
@emerson1

I'd like to hear from the users that are experiencing situational misdirects like these. I've worked with some users on AVS to correct, or at least remedy URL that are parsed incorrectly for various browsers.

What I have linked below is an extracted list of movies that share a common link format as seen in the two pictures.




I have found 288 similar items that are now consolidated in the test post below. Please hit as many links as you are willing and post your results within that thread.

Steven Spielberg Director's Collection ... when I clicked on it it brought me to Million Dollar Arm.

* I only tried a dozen BR titles @ random, till I hit a glitch with that title above.
I will try some more as days and weeks go by, and let you know. Give me couple months or so and I will have check them all.

The batch we're working on have/lack within their html the ability to land specifically.


You'll see the link is missing -forum- and I believe the php.do or whatever the php process is; grants more leeway to user logged in as opposed to user as guest. In other words, it guess better or searches harder for logged in user.

EXAMPLE:
These user above us were landing on Forum whilst requesting Thread:
PHP Code:
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/187-official-avs-forum-blu-ray-disc-reviews/ 
Whereas they were requesting or pointed to:
PHP Code:
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/187-official-avs-blu-ray-disc-reviews/1939801-interstellar-blu-ray-official-avs-forum-review.html 
Compare both lines and notice the difference.

The guest user will not find the Thread 1939801 as the php will stop thinking and dump them right on 187 (the Forum ID). Path of least resistance no pun intented

Idealy we would want to land on the Post: 32780497

But retrofitting all the done works is/ would be a daunting task unmasking the Post ID and keeping the A/V = ###, as the reviews go from old VB to Huddler to new VB.

Thanks for finding the lurker.

Thumbs up Change Log

Ralph,
I regard your time very much and want you to have one less mundane task to fiddle with.
In that respect this is my method of keeping up with you and Lee.

I use the forum sort function to sort by date a thread is posted:


There I can see what may not have made it to the new Home page and still capture the first post ID number, Title, and rating. This info is then manipulated to a bbcode for parsing. Then it is copied/sorted alphabetically into the working version.

Using either a "Quoted" first post from your database working version or my local txt file copy, I then can compare/use a freeware program called ''ExamDiff" to compare the changes done to a dated txt file for the years of reviews.





The change log in plain text to date is:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Change Log
Added:
Southpaw
South Park: The Complete 18th Season
Corrected spelling to Age of Ultorn
The Fifth Element
Leon: The Professional (2015)
Sorted: Leon: The Professional (2009)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
