Again, the issue is with the chipsets of certain BD players, NOT THE DISC.

I would bet serious money most people use PCM on TV speakers.

From the looks of this thread, it seems as though 90% of players have an issue with this disc. So, we should be lucky that we have a player with a "good chipset" because it seems as though most people here have this audio problem.

The majority of this thread has been people talking about their sound issues so the stats are more than a bit skewed. 90% of Blu-ray.com isn't posting here. I have a hard time believing nobody plays movies on their PS3s anymore and that everyone bitstreams...

lol, there are DOZENS of blu-ray players out there that have this issue... I have 3 of them (some only created in the last 12 months) and they ALL have the dropouts.... and about bitstreaming... basically just about anyone who has a DTS-HD MA /Dolby TrueHD capable receiver bitstreams.

Dozens BD players all use MediaTek decoder chipsets. You have multiple player lines in a single model year all using the same decoder.


If it wasn't, all BD players would have a bitstreaming issue. In-player decoding would not work either.

It's still the disc, then.

1) Sony should've tested the disc on a wide variety of platforms.

2) This disc won't play properly on Sony BD players.

For those considering purchasing this title the "Total Recall (Mastered in 4k)" edition is said to not exhibit the issue. I purchased a copy myself which is getting delivered tomorrow, so I'll be able to report back to confirm having already sold my original copy of this which exhibited the issue being discussed here on all of my Blu-ray players.

The problem is that the MI4K release does not contain the extended cut or any of the extras on the initial release.

That's because that disc does not have the extended version (via branching), which is generally considered to be better than the theatrical version.

Good to know for sure. Thanks for pointing those things out. For those interested you can check out the differences between the theatrical and extended cuts here. That being said, I've already seen the extended cut and would rather downgrade to the theatrical cut at this point in favor of being able to bitstream instead. I also don't care about having the bonus materials. Prefer to not reveal the man behind the curtain in most cases and would much rather spend that same time watching another feature presentation instead. To each his own naturally.
