I've recently watched episodes from the new Blu-rays of seasons 1 and 2 on Playstation 3s. One is an original PS3 and the other is a new slim model. Both are running the latest firmware. Watching the episodes with the original effects and the original mono track, I get drop outs during the seamless branching on both players running two different systems. It was very noticeable at the start of "Miri" and a line of dialogue was dropped out in "Who Mourns for Adonais?".
I don't recall this happening using the older firmware, when I went through all of season 1 a few months ago. Re-visiting those discs and watching the new ones though has brought this issue to light. It's a common occurrence and tends to happen after an effects shot. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? If so, what player are you using? If not, again, what player are you using?
Again, I've only noticed this while viewing with the original effects and the original mono tracks. I'm not interested in feedback regarding the new effects and the 7.1 tracks. Thanks!
