Default DTS Bomb on The Golden Compass

Looks like another new release has the DTS Bomb when using BD-30's and Onkyo recievers.

I got one at around the 19:13 mark (When Christopher Lee and company are in the dimly lit room plotting shenanagans).

Its odd to me that these newer titles are having this issue resurface (I never had issue with DTS bombs untill AVP:R and now the Golden Compass).

This is a RECEIVER Decoder DSP Issues. Only Onkyo and Yamaha have this problem and can be fixed with a simple DSP Flash.

Visit the Receiver Section to see how to process you're receiver...

contact Onkyo about a patch for your receiver.

Yea, I know about the issue and the fix. Unfortunately I either have to ship my reciever off to New York (From maryland) for who knows how long.

The other option being burn it to a disc and then flash it myself.

Not everyone has fixed their Receiver, I was just attempting to be nice and point out the issue for those folks. Would suck to blow out your speakers due to this.

To add, To the two who said there is a firmware fix for this.. My understanding is it does not cover the 605. If there is a fix for 605, I would like to see it..

And just to clarify, this is for those who bitstream DTS-HDMA to the Onkyo receiver. I

f you have a PS3, you cannot bitstream DTS-HDMA, so you're decoding it on the PS3 and sending it via multichannel PCM to the Onkyo, so this shouldn't affect PS3 owners, correct? Or should I be worried. I watched TGC a couple of nights ago and did not experience the bomb during the scene you mentioned.

It's only when the reciever is decoding the DTS-HDMA and not when you send it via PCM.

To think of upgrading my old Onkyo TX-DS676 to the new models with
the new codecs,Dolby TruHD,DD+,DTS HD MA, guess it's better to hold
on for a bit longer.I was looking at the Onkyo 705.

Actually I am enjoying all the 5.1 uncompressed audio thru my multi-channel
analoque connection be it TruHD or DTS HD MA.I'll give them time to
improve before embarking on an upgrade.

When Golden Compass started playing it nearly blew out my surround speakers even with the volume levels down. I had to go into my receiver and change from standard to 7.1 stereo to correct it. As you can see I have a Denon receiver and BD player. This is the only disc out of 60 played that this has happened.

High rear channel volume/distortion on GC (vs. the loud pop) appears to be a NewLine DTS implementation issue. See this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1025877

Just watched this tonight. Panny BD-30(1.6fw) bitstreaming DTS HD MA to an Onkyo 605 with the DSP upgrade. No problems.

I thought Denon products were safe from the DTS MA Bomb because they use a different brand of DSP chips.

I updated my Integra DTC-9.8 and no DTS bomb. There are small pops with this title when I pause, chapter skip, etc. I also have a BD-30.
