    My wife recently bought Finding Nemo for the kids, there were problems with the audio completely dropping out for a second or so throughtout the film. She returned the first copy and picked up another and the same thing happened.

    My current configuration is an older Toshiba 6200 Cinema Servies DVD 3+ years old, Outlaw audio amp/receiver, Paradigm speakers.

    Questions are:

    1. Is anyone else having this problem?

    2. Is this a decoding issue?

    3. Are there special settings for THX? (I'm set up for Digital Dolby)

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Actually, it's a problem with any receiver or pre-amp that doesn't have Dolby's new coding for reading the EX flag (as their DD encoder's software had been modified), which Finding Nemo does have. Dolby had dropped the EX flag due to this glitch, and now has brought it back since they felt most new receivers and processors are up to date.

    I have an Outlaw Model 950 pre-amp that was designed right as Dolby was changing their EX coding, so it is not affected, but their older 1050 receiver is.
