Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Extremely disappointed to hear about the audio error on eAF. I don't get that none of the major review sites caught this. My copy was just send, too late to cancel.

In light of the sound issues in EAF now, I'm glad I waited before ordering. I certainly don't want to pay for a defective set...nor do I want to start collecting if the effects are going to be inconsistent. I think I'll be waiting for the release of Season 2, or at least some more Season 1 / Season 2 comparison shots before I lay down any money.

I had such high hopes that the mistakes and inconsistencies of TOSR would not be an issue with this set. I hope they get their act together on this.
There is nothing wrong with the sound on EAF in this set. I just got my copy here in USA and the dialogue is only coming out of the center channel. My receiver automatically set itself to pure DTS mode. Try changing your receivers mode before saying there is a problem. 5.1ch sounds perfect and dialogue only in the center channel.
Believe me, I am a home cinema enthusiast of many, many years. My system is set up to exacting standards - I can assure you the DTS HD Master Audio on the disc I have IS encoded incorrectly on EAF.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

It's disappointing that this problem wasn't picked up as its pretty obvious when you listen to the episode. It's like it wasn't checked by anyone, I'm surprised none of the reviewers noticed it either.

I seem to have a lip synch problem on the documentary on Disk 1 too.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

This audio thing is concerning but I'm not quite clear on the whole left/right/center audio people are talking about. Are these secondary speakers (Which I don't have) or is this something I should look out for when I get the set tomorrow.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

We are talking about a surround sound set up with 2 front a centre and 2 rear speakers. If you are using your tv speakers then you should be fine as it downmixes the 7.1 to 2 channel.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

In regards to the season two VFX being completed by a different company, I did notice in the trailer that the Enterprise looked markedly different, with it lacking the 'oomph' that season 1 had, also the planets in the before and after shot looked almost identical. I was hoping that the style done in season 1 would be carried over, however it appears that it may not be the case.

The Digital Bits has a review of the set, and nowhere is this "audio error" mentioned...

Movie is starting. 4k satellite feed here at Tinseltown. Not the advertising projector.

That seems unlikely -- not that I think you're lying or anything... but the show was only mastered in 2K. Why would they use a 4K satellite feed?

Can you take a picture of the projection booth window behind you after the first episode is over? I'm curious where the light is coming from (primary projector or secondary projector).

It may be that they didn't check the pilot very carefully, having already reviewed it when the sampler came out.

Me too. Really puts a damper on my excitement level. I never purchased the sampler disc so was very excited to watch EAF tomorrow night when my set arrives. I dont get how a huge audio error like this could slip past the testers. And on the very first episode too. Hope the rest are ok.

Are you talking about the stock shots that ILM created for the pilot, or the new shots that were done at the Post Group. Because I would expect some differences as the amount of production time the pilot effects had is much larger then the time a normal episode would get. So I would naturally expect some change in level of quality. Not to mention as the production team expanded their supervisors, each of them provided a different style to each of there episodes, and a Legato done episode in season two is going to look different then even his own episodes in season 1 (they talk about how they run themselves into the ground in season one), let alone the difference between Legato and Curry.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R general discussion thread!

Well the movie is over and it was definitely NOT 4k. Maybe 2K. Plus there was some "technical difficulties" at my theater. They were getting the movie using satellite to a DVR, and half way through it, it said it lost signal and some parts of one of the interviews were skipped and wouldnt play. Worse yet, all of the sudden the projectionist started rewinding the damn thing to see what was missed. Some young teenage girl then opened the projectionist window and asked us if there was any more that wasmissed. People told her to just hit play. One other thing, is theblack level didnt look set correctly. The two episodes looked very washed out, especially compared to the featured HD specials that they also played in between the episodes. Hopefully the black level will be correct on the blu-ray.

Hmm possibly, but im moreso referring to some of the screenshots that have been released thus far. For example, the shot of the Enterprise approaching Minos in "Arsenal of Freedom" is terrific, and shows a great improvement in not only the Enterprise and the planet itself. Compare that to the shot of the Enterprise in orbit of a planet in the season 2 trailer and the difference is staggering, well to me at least anyway.

You're really gonna let this relatively minor screw up in the grand scheme of things deter you from buying the season?
