Anyone having audio issues with Toy Story 3? I am, and at least one other reported the very same issue. Below link gives full details.

I have a 7.1 certified system, and we viewed the Blu Ray last night without any such symptoms...it was also stated that 5.1 audio had no such problems.

So this appears to be a blog posting specific to a certain 7.1 setup at one location....still something to keep an eye on...but no problem here with Onkyo 7.1 THX audio. The 3 reviews I read also indicated the 7.1 audio was excellent and without problems.

The issue is in two locations. Me too. My AVR is THX certified 7.1 too. The Oppo speaks for itself. I have Definitive Technology bi-amp’d speakers that have been driven much harder than toy Story 3.

My only guess without doing research. My Pioneer Elite - VSX-84TXSi has HDMI version 1.2a. I’m under the impression you can send 7.1 linear PCM through HDMI. Is that correct? Plus, like I said, other 7.1 discs play fine?

To give you an idea what the issue sounds like. It sounds like you’re feeding a low frequency signal through your midrange and tweeters. Or better yet, you plug your speakers into a 120 volt outlet. Yup, it sounds that bad.

I can just select 5.1 DTS master audio and all works great. This is not that big of a deal. I just wanted to post it incase others had the same problem.

All good to know.
I have been unable to replicate it here with my Onkyo AVR, Panasonic Blu Ray player, and Snell speakers.

If it is found to indeed be a flaw for 7.1...they'll likely do what they've done in the past for other such scenarios....offer replacements for those who want/need one.

Thanks for sharing...good for folks to know.
