    I mentioned this in the "review" thread for "American Outlaws" but I've been over the main feature again and these are the points where the audio drops out:

    It affects the DD5.1 English track ONLY afaik (but I cannot check DTS as I have no decoder)

    1) Chapter 13 02:12 (00:38:59 in main runtime)

    When Jesse says "that safe?" the word "safe" dropsout.

    2) Chapter 23 02:56 (01:19:53 in main runtime)

    When Jesse says "Oh, you're on the same train?" the words "oh, you're" dropout.

    3) Chapter 28 04:00 (01:33:39 in main runtime)

    During end credits the music dropsout for a second at this point.

    All the audio dropputs are approx a second long.

    Does anyone have any explaination for this?

    Why does it only affect the English DD5.1 track?

    I should add that this problem has occured on both my Sony 725 player and my PC DVD-Rom player, so it's definately a disc fault.

    Hope this helps someone

    So, has ANYONE else noticed this problem on their disc, or do I just have a defective disc?
    (Maybe I'm the only person who has bought this DVD! [​IMG] )

    You have yet to tell us what equipment you have. That is key in helping to track down the problem.

    Thanks Dan but I did already say what equipment I was using!

    It makes no difference if I listen to the disc through the TV or via headphones conncted directly to the dvd player, or whether I listen on the PC. It is the same problem on the English DD5.1 track and (except for DTS, which I can't check) the other audio tracks are unaffected.

    I just wondered if anyone else had this disc and could check with my list above??

    Richard,

    I noticed the "bank" dropout. I don't recall the other ones. At first, I thought it was a layer change, but it seemed awfully early for that. Going back and watching it again, the Dolby Digital didn't collapse to a DLP mode, as is usual for a layer change. So, I would say it is a defect in the disc.

    I checked my disc and it too had the three droputs you mention on the DD5.1 track. I noticed it on both my Sony 550 dvd player (receiver is a Sony DB930) and my PC's DVD-ROM.

    I also checked the DTS track and there were no dropouts at those locations.

    I guess I'm the lucky one. I had no problems with AO, but I watched it in DTS, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.[​IMG]
