Entire Mystery Blu Ray -- Questions About Defects

Postby ThatGumULike » Sat May 14, 2016 8:11 pm

Two years ago, I pre-ordered the Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery Blu-Ray from Amazon and received it the day it came out. I watched And the Missing Pieces the night I received it and have watched that extra (along with some other extras, plus a few of my favorite scenes) since then. I've never sat down and watched the entire series on the Blu-Rays, though (if I've wanted to watch an episode, it's usually right before bed on my iPad via Netflix).

I've read some reviews on Amazon that indicate that the Blu Rays have some defects at various spots in the series. I do plan to watch the entire series and FWWM via Blu Ray at least once before the new season starts. Can anyone tell me specific parts of episodes that are known to have issues? I'd like to "pre check" these before starting the series so that I can request replacement discs if necessary.

Thanks!

It's the reason I've not watched the Blu-Ray's more often. I mostly buy TV shows on iTunes now and might yet get the iTunes TP episodes in the run-up to the new series.

Had a Panasonic DMP-BD65 and it had the sync issues.

Acquired a Panasonic DMP-BD360 and now the sync is perfect.

So I take it the audio-sync issue was never addressed by CBS and never fixed in later pressings of the discs?

I've read elsewhere (http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php ... 4&page=186) that even the new nine-disc re-release has the exact same pressings, so it looks very much like CBS has no intention of doing anything about the issue. My guess is that they probably decided it's a hardware problem and not a disc-related issue, since some setups don't have the problem at all. I'm not even sure they're wrong about this . . . I've run into similar issues with Netflix on my own system due to manufacturers improperly implementing the decoding standard for Dolby Digital Plus. In my case it was a Sony receiver, but other devices made by other manufacturers had the same problem.

After reading about the sync issues back when the set came out I decided not to buy it, but today when I found the nine-disc version on sale, I caved in and ordered that (Twin Peaks: The Original Series, Fire Walk With Me & The Missing Pieces). If I do have the sync problems I'll report back on them.

I watched the Missing Pieces, and definitely noticed the sound issue during the lumber mill scene. I knew to watch for it there in particular, but it was obvious enough that I would've noticed it anyway. This is on the newer nine-disc version (which costs less but omits the final disc of special features).

I didn't notice any other sync issues at all. That one scene didn't give me the slightest impression of an incorrectly authored disc, or of hardware/settings problems. It looked to me as if the scene's ADR was never quite finished (it was a deleted scene, after all). I didn't see anything in The Missing Pieces to suggest audio sync issues in the blu-ray itself.

FWIW, though, I've got my sound routed through a co-axial digital output, as a workaround for my receiver's bad Dolby Plus decoding, which might make a difference. BD player is a Sony BDP-S390.

Completely unrelated to the Blu-Ray set but I'm honestly not sure where to put this - anyone know of a way to access the old Artisan episode commentaries for S1 as well as the possibly unreleased S2 ones? Asking for, uh, a friend.

I have both collections on DVD. It's been a while since I've extracted audio from a vob file but I can look into it. Not sure if that's what you're looking for though.

Update:

Yesterday I replaced my Sony BDP-S5200 with a Sony BDP-S3700. After setting it up and disabling 24p, the Entire Mystery box plays 100% perfectly without audio sync issues. Even the 2 x 4 scene with Pete and Josie, which I could never get to play correctly on my older unit.
