Not sure this was the right place to post,  so excuse me if i have posted this incorrectly...

i have been trying to watch the bluray of the latest total recall film,  but its unwatchable due to constant audio drop outs & it also keeps dropping out of sync with the picture.... a mate just called me to ask about it,  as his is doing the same....  is anyone else out there having similar problems?  has there been any sort of announcement regarding this?

Watched it on Monday with no issues. That doesn't mean that you and your friend haven't got bad discs though. Do all other Blu-ray's work OK?

Hi Gar1975......I am 15 minutes in and have the same sound dropping issue. Must be a faulty batch of discs.

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Again, which blu ray player have you got & is the firmware latest? Sounds more like player related than a faulty batch of discs.

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Hi gar1975

I've had no issues with my Blu Ray copy of Total Recall using Yamaha's BD-S1900 & Aventage BD-A1020 Blu Ray players with an Aventage RX-A3020 (HDMI) & Chord Electronics DSP8000 AV processor (fibre optic).

All the best

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Seems like an issue with the disc.

Need to set the player's audio settings from bitstream to PCM to solve this.

According to some users, they tried on different player and have the same issue.

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

My player is the pioneer lx-71 my brothers is a panasonic,  not sure of model number.  both fully updated with latest software.  we both got the steelbook edition from hmv.  since posting on here i did some searching and found that there are a lot of people having problems & not just in the UK... i would post the link to the forum but not sure that is allowed on here?  the only advice i could find was having to switch player to PCM... in my eyes,  thats still a fault & i will be returning the disc to hmv today...

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Guys can any one help me??  i have a sony bdps 570 and everything else plays as 5.1 however the new Total Recall will only play left and right front speakers in TrueHD 5.1. however will gladly play in 5.1 if i switch to audio descriptive . that is the 2nd selection on the audio. i know i have an old amp Sony str-db940 but everything else i have plays as 5.1 ?? Bought the new Batman movie and that works fine 

 

Any suggestions? or is this just another fault as per the drop out mentioned earlier.

Thanks for any help ....

I had the same problem with the audio but found if I switch my blu-ray player audio output to PCM I was able to watch the movie perfectly fine. It seems to be a problem with the true HD audio track itself.  Hope this helps

Yeah, I had trouble too via my Pioneer BD Player.  It's a bit of a relief as I thought my player was faulty Smile

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Rented it last week and had exactly the same problem. sound dropping out for long periods and quite a few times it dropped out for a split second. Skipping back a chapter seemed to bring the sound back.

Very annoying, glad it was only a rental (not worth buying anyway - Best bit was the super hot Kate Beckinsale Smile )

RE: Audio problems with UK total recall bluray

Put this on tonight having rented from lovefilm. Sputtering / jumping sound - was about to start cleaning the disc and then had a vague memory of this thread. Switching to PCM did indeed solve the problem, so thanks all  Smile Film not great but given how much I love the original it had to be watched.
