hi i posted a question in the trilogy thread further down but feel i need to start a thread hopefully can get a wider audience.i bought the 1st 2 films through avforums classified last week.when i play the films i get no sound whatsoever during film playback although through the menus and adverts i get full sound.i`ve tried all dts/dolby options on my player and also through all options on discs.this is on both films????
i`m using a sony bdv e870 to play these.all other BD i have work flawlessly.the bloke i bought from says they played fine on his samsung player,the other film i bought of him plays fine so pretty sure they`re not faulty.
so.. i was just wondering if any other members have had probs with these 2 films and if so how to resolve issue of sound or any other tips i could try?

cheers

The disc will be fine and sounds like a audio settings needs to be changed.

Looking at the manual try these settings. I assume you are using the speakers only and not a AV amp on the HDMI out.

BD audio Mix - On
Audio DRC - Auto
Audio Output - Speaker

The LPCM 5.1 will come out in 2 channel (needs a HD amp for full 5.1) so DD 5.1 audio needs to be selected.

OP, can you give more info? What are the current settings? The manual indicates that the kit supports all audio formats, so there has to be a config issue somewhere.

The post above is a good starting point, although personally I'd leave Audio DRC off as it has a tendency to make some soundtracks stupidly quiet.

Auto for DRC is supposed to use the dynamic range set on the disc.

I know, but as anyone who's ever used it in conjunction with Iron Man will tell you, it can and does go wrong!
