    Anyone know of any problems with the sound on region2 pearl harbour disc. I watched a friends copy last night and every 5-10 minute thoughout the film there was a momentary pause in the sound. Is this a know fault?

    Many thanks

    I rented this movie a few weeks ago and had absolutly no problems with the soundtrack, which was fantastic. Anyway, sorry I can't be of more help. I don't know if there is any difference between, I assume you watched a UK release, the UK release and the Scandinavian one.

    I've got the UK Region 2 release and I've not got the problem you mention.

    Do you own an Onkyo or Denon receiver?

    There are compatibility problems with Pearl Harbor (R1/2) and most of Onkyo's newer receivers and the Denon 1602 and 1802.

    Yes, I have an Onkyo 595.

    Do you happen to know exactly what the problem is and has it been experienced with any other films/discs?

    Thanks for your help............Shaun

    There are several ongoing discussions of the problem in the main software area. Run a search for Onkyo, Dropouts and Pearl Harbor and you should find all the information you could want.
    Here are a few threads I found on the subject:

    Other titles affected are Jurassic Park 3 and several of Anchor Bay's newer discs with re-mixed Dolby Digital Surround EX soundtracks.
