Hi guys quick question here. I bought the perfect storm on blu ray and could not access the Dolby true HD track for some reason. The words Dolby true HD kept blinking on my receiver . So i had to end up listening to the regular dolby 5.1. Has anyone else had this problem? I am going to take the disc back to Best Buy and Have them try it there to see if it connects on one of their receivers. I had a problem a while back ago trying to access a DTS track on Interview with the Vampire which is warners as well.thanks guys.

Panasonice BD-30 PLAYER AND ONKYO 605. THIS IS REALLY THE FIRST DISC I HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH AS FAR AS AUDIO GOES. I HAVE 50 BLU RAY DISCS AND I WILL TELL YOU THE PLAYER AND RECEIVER ARE JUST AWESOME, ABSOLUTELY AWESOME.

Well, first things first.

- Make sure you have the latest firmware for the Panasonic. It should be 2.2.

- I have heard that some models of the Onkyo 605 have some firmware issues as well, though I don't know what exactly. You may want to inquire about that through their customer service.

- I'm assuming your audio is connected via HDMI from the player to the receiver. Is that correct?

YES I AM CONNECTED HDMI. THE LAST FIRMWARE UPDATE WAS AT 1.6. THAT WHAT I HAVE NOW. I SPOKE TO PANASONIC ABOUT THE FIRMWARE UPDATES IF I NEEDED ANY AND THEY SAID THE UPDATES NOW ARE JUST MAINLY FOR BEING CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET. MAYBE I SHOULD CALL THEM AGAIN AND ASK. I JUST HAD A RECENT FIRMWARE UPDATE ON MY ONKYO FOR THE DTS POP SOUND. BUT WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS CERTAIN DISC DOESN'T PLAY?

Hey Brandon. thanks for all your help. I called Panasonic and they are mailing me the disc for 2.2. I called onkyo and there are no recent firmware updates for the 605. I think it's just this particular disc that the receiver won't recognize to play.who knows . I am going to exchange the disc and get a new one and see what happens.thanks again for your help.NOTE: PANASONIC DID SAY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING AUDIO DROPOUTS SHOULD UPDATE TO 2.2. I HAVEN'T HAD ANY AUDIO DROPOUTS, BUT I AM GOING TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE ANY WAY JUST SO I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT.

Briane:

Welcome to the forum! :emoji_thumbsup:

Keep us informed as to how things work out!

What Jari is having a little fun about your use of the SHIFT key on your keyboard. It seems like you are trying to use upper/lower case letters in your posts--which is preferred here at the HTF...but it seems to sometimes get "stuck!" :D

Anyway, hope you like the place and stick around. There are lots of good people and lots of great information here. Are you a fan of Richard & Karen Carpenter?
