I have noticed the Dolby Digital droput problem on a few DVDs Ive watched (on a very few) and usually it only happens once or twice during a viewing. However the last movie I watched, Mr. Deeds, had several dropouts. According to the Dolby Digital web site, they know the problems with the various flags in the bit stream and they encouraged DVD shops to stop using the format in question. They said, supposedly, that they were working on a fix for this in their encoding so that it wouldnt happen on the older receivers. My questions are, does anyone else have this problem with the 3802, does Denon have a fix for this, is it really necessary to get the fix if it only happens on a few DVDs and Dolby is supposedly working on the problem? Any guidance on tis issue would be helpful. Thanks. To see Dolby's response, go to http://dolby.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/do...cGFnZT0x&p_li= It just seems to me that if they were REALLY doing anything about this, that Mr. Deeds is such a new release, that any fix they would be implementing would have been done by then. This is just one more reason why I ALWAYS use DTS tracks when they are available.
