Australia Problems with Amazing Spiderman 3D blu?

I just purchased the 3D amazing spiderman set ($29 at Big W) and as I watched it, toward the second half, the film started to slow down and the sound started to buffer (like a bad downloaded copy that cant keep up with the action). This continued to happen and got progressively worse and worse till the movie was basically unwatchable.

I thought it had to be my blu-ray player, but I went back to the beginning half of the movie and it was perfectly fine (as it was when I first played it), then went back to the second half and it was back to being unwatchable. Other movies have been working perfectly fine.

I don't have another player to check it on, but so far it seems as if its the disc since its happening in the same spots everytime.

Anyone else having problems?

Were you watching it in 2d or 3d? Or does it do it during playback in both modes? I might check my copy out later for the issue, however I haven't seen it yet and was planning on watching something else tonight, so I can't promise that I will check it for you.
Setup:

Yeah Nickmate, I checked out the review for the US copy, and there was no mention.

Cevolution, it's the same disc for 3D and 2D but you select which option you want on the menu. I watched in 2D as I don't have a 3D player or tv yet.

Might be a single disk problem or small batch error. Have you got any mates or relatives with a Blu-ray player. Try it on theirs, if its the same problem, return it. If the problem arises, i would contact Sony/Universal and report the issue and make sure they send you are a replacement disk.

Hmmmm, I watched it in 2D on my Sony BDPS370 the other night and it didn't glitch out like that for me. Mind you my disc is 2D only, could be a problem with 3D discs? Or maybe your firmware?

I'm also having a problem with this disc, but of a different nature

I'm using an LG BP620 player, and an LG LM6700 TV, all latest firmware and software.

It loads the disc, the TV automatically detects 3D content and switches to 3D mode. The first time i played the disc, the screen just stayed black but the time counter kept going. I stopped the disc after 2:26, removed it, tried again, and now it loads the disc, then jumps straight to 2:26 and just sits on that. I've tried playing other blurays, they work fine. I go back to the 3d disc, does the same thing...

Not sure if this is a player or disc issue, as it's the first 3D disc i've tried playing, and the only one I have. Any tips?

PS. sorry to hijack your thread, but thought if I created another it would be seen as a duplicate...

Check your player settings. Where it says output resolution I would hazard a guess you have it set at "1080p". Try setting it to "source direct" or whatever it's called on your player. I've heard of some people having difficulties with 3D playback where the player tries to process the video stream. Worth checking to see if that's the issue for you...

Thanks for relying atexp80.

I'm a little closer to finding a solution. My receiver seems to be the issue, as I plugged the player straight into the tv and it's working. Now I just need to work out why the receiver isn't cooperating. That's not an issue with the Spiderman bluray though, so ill get out of here...

In that case, same issue. Check if your receivers output resolution is set to 1080p. If it is, try setting it to Auto or Source Direct. Hopefully that does the trick.

Default Problems with the audio on amazing spiderman 3d bluray

I use a PS3 to play my Amazing Spiderman 3D Blu-ray Disc. I use a Yamaha YAS-101 soundbar. My problem is when I play the movie I get audio with descriptive narration and the voices are muted. I tried removing the disc and replaying the movie but the same thing happens. It's like it's using a handicap sound setting. Anyone know how to fix this audio problem?

I also purchased Spiderman Blueray 3D from Walmart and cannot see any of the 3D movie. Once I hit play movie, the screen goes black. I exchanged it for another one and am having the same problem. I wonder did Walmart got a bad batch?????

I haven't had any problem with my copy of Amazing Spider Man 3D. I have watched it twice (in my PS3) since I got it and it works fine. I bought my copy from JB Hi Fi.

I watched it once in 2d and once in 3d, and didn't experience any problems with mine either. I highly doubt it's disc related, it will be a player issue.

Default This disc may be a new kind of 3D disc.

I think either lack of a current firmware update on the part of the consumer,or the lack of a solution in the current firmware by the maker of the player may be the cause of some of the trouble here.

I remember seeing these kinds of issues with a few movie titles back in the early DVD days. For better or worse, it all comes from trying to expand the capabilities of an existing format to its limits.

For others, THe problem may be that their existing home theater receiver can't pass through a 3D signal. There are a few solutions that issue:

Run the HDMI from the Blu-Ray player directly to their HDTVand output the sound from the HDTV to the receiver. (If your HDTV has an HDMI OUT)

Get a new 3D ready receiver,

Buy a dual HDMI output blu-ray player.

I bought a a Panasonic DMP-BDT310 player with dual HDMI outputs for that very reason. My receiver is an older one with no 3D. In my set-up, one HDMI cable goes directly to the HDTV for the 3D picture portion, and the other HDMI goes to the receiver for the sound portion. For those of you without receiver pass-through issues, hopefully the makers of the Blu-Ray players will have updated their hardware by now, and this will be a non-issue.

Hey guys,

Can anyone tell me if the Amazing Spider-Man Triple Play set comes with 2x BD or just the one BD+DVD+Digital?
