It has been discovered that some newer DD-EX pre/pros and receivers are experiencing audio dropouts on both Pearl Harbor and Jurrasic Park 3. The problem apparently is due to a new type of DD-EX flag, being used on these DVDs, which also contains some information on the type of encoder used to manufacture the disc. This new information has been placed on the DD-EX flag as a type of anti-piracy code to help identify "real" DVDs. Unfortunately, this information confuses the DSP chip and causes it to self mute, causing the audio dropouts. Apparently, Dolby, LucasFilm and the manufacturers who use this DSP are all blaming each other for the problem. My understanding on this is sketchy at best, so if anyone has any more info, or corrections on this, please post it here so we all can read it. We have already seen by posts in this forum that the Onkyos are having this problem, and one person has reported that Onkyo will be replacing the DSP chips in the affected units. Who else is having audio dropouts when viewing these movies?
