    If any one else has an 88+ and an R1 copy of T2 UE would they please check the following.

    The disc works fine on my Pioneer 525 but I have just tried it on my friends 88+. The strange thing was what ever sound type I chose (DTS, DD 5.1 es or DD2.0) it always played the DD aurora ident. The film is shown with the selected sound formt though. This seemed strange as when I selected the DTS version on my system I got the DTS spinning disc ident.

    So my question is why is it going to the wrong track and does anbody else have this problem ?

    it needs a software upgrade,88+ are known to drop the dts signal if theres a pause in the signal and revert back to dd.There are several other discs that do this

    Hi... the problem u saw was from discs which had DTS/DD sondtracks but would not play the DTS.. U571 was another example. It only seemed to effect DVD's which wold not let you swap audio tracks on the fly.

    2.x.x.34 sorted this out but the latest software patch is now 3.00.

    Give Arcam/your dealer a call to get the latest software.

    Matt
