I have just bought the Blu-ray DVD "Unknown" starring Liam Neeson.
It's pretty good, though not as good as "Taken".
However I have a problem with the Audio. When I play the actual movie I don't get Surround Sound, just pretty basic stereo.
My equipment includes a Sony Blu-ray player BDP-S360, and Sony Receiver DA1200ES.
According to the back of the dvd box the Audio is 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. I know my Sony receiver cannot decode the latest "HD" type audio formats.
But what makes it doubly annoying is that in the "Extras" on the dvd is the movie Trailer. When I play this I get full Surround Sound that my receiver decodes ok ?
I contacted the DVD producer StudioCanal, and they say the audio for the Trailer and the actual movie are the same, 5.1 DTS Master & Stereo LPCM.
If that is so how is it I get full Surround Sound from the Trailer but piddling CD type stereo from the Movie proper ??
I tried another Blu-ray DVD Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince and thats fine, but I notice that that has Dolby TrueHD AND Dolby Digital 5.1, so it caters for the people with the very latest receivers that can decode HD digital audio and the older pre-HD digital audio euipment.
That dvd is by Warner Brothers, maybe I should avoid StudioCanal DVDs if they won't cater for older equipment guys like me ?
Has anyone else had this problem with Blu-ray movie audio ??
