    I got a few drop outs during my viewing (I finally got around to it). I can't remember the time locations, and when I find out, I will tell all. But I do know that one drop out is in the opening scene. Suggestions, defective?

    No problems here. Watching it on a Pioneer DV-440 with a Sony STR-DE845 receiver.

    I didn't have any issues with the DTS track, either.

    No issues here, other than being a bit disappointed with the track.

    I noticed a dropout during the opening titles, but I haven't played it back, as I just thought it was a glitch. Let me know if it was in the opening titles, and I'll try looking for it and get a timecode for you.

    Watched it last night didn't notice any drop offs. But when they were talking in Jimmy's kitchen it sounded like they were in an all tile bathroom. A small all tile bathroom [​IMG] .
    I switched over to the Dolby Digital and nada problemo. Have to try it on a friends receiver but mine (Yamaha HTR-5280) has never had problems with DTS before.

    I noticed that when Jules flips the table over, it doesn't seem to make as much sound as when Vincent opens the briefcase. I guess I'll listen to it again in DD and see if it sounds the same.

    I noticed some dialog clipping/distortion in the "Bonnie Situation" segment of the movie, but no dropouts. Wasn't particularly impressed with the DTS track though. Haven't compared the DD track.

    My Panny RV-32 and The DTS track were a deadly combo, the whole Bonny Situation was muffeled and hard to hear and If i hadnt seen the movie 1001 times I would have had to rewind just to pick up the dialog throught the movie. by far the worst DTS track I have ever heared. Not that ive heared many however.
