Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

I got my discs today. Probably not going to get into them so quickly, but the postcard thing they sent was a little cute.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

I'm just watching "Skin of Evil" right now, and there was a very odd audio problem (actually two within 2 seconds). Just after the away team returns with Yar and Crusher saying that she "needs her in sickbay", Crushers audio sounds badly muffled and extremely low (so low that even turning the audio up I can barely make out what she says). And then it cuts too the bridge with Picard and Worf, and Picard says "go too yellow alert Mr. Worf", and on that line there is an odd doubling effect on his line. They're both in the center, but one is just slightly delayed, so you get an echo. These ar errors from the 1980's and not errors from 2012.


Edit: I just checked the original audio, these problems are in the 25 year old audio, but the levels on the audio surrounding Crusher's line are mixed lower too match, whereas on the Blu-Ray the surround audio is mixed higher; Picard's doubling is also in the original audio, but not as noticeable.

I got my replacement discs today and found that The Naked Now won't play all the way through. It freezes about 15 minutes in. I called the number again and they're now sending me another replacement disc for the replacement disc with the problem. Kind of annoying, but at least they're taking care of it. lol

Chapter 3 (13:15-21:55) of "The Naked Now" on the new disc one plays fine for me on a Panasonic DMP-BD75, so it must be that specific disc you received -- you should be good to go with a a new replacement disc.

Got my replacement set from Amazon a couple days ago. Haven't had a chance to check 'em out yet, but full marks to CBS and Amazon for some good customer service there.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

So, if someone were to buy the bluray set for the first time, from say, amazon, would it be safe to assume that they would receive the corrected version right off the bat? Or would it be a gamble? I really don't want to go through this whole exchanging faulty discs thing if it can be avoided.

Nope, Play's site still shows a delivery period of 3-5 weeks. I'm not that bothered as DD2.0 is good enough for me. I'm not bothered by the odd FX mistake as long as it's relatively unnoticeable. Perfection is an unobtainable goal.

Re: Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray Audio Issues

I got a mail from Amazon UK on wednesday that they sent my replacement set but I have yet to receive it. I don't know how they've sent them but it's slower than usual.

Discs were in the mail today, along with a neat little card of the drawing they used in the credits.

True, but six-sigma is attainable (99.9997%) -- the goal of most quality control.
