    "A theater fit for Lord Vader"?

    Star Wars Home Theater (the slide show doesn't get interesting until slide 5).

    You think the owner of this home bought the new Blu Ray discs?

    That's pretty cool... but in slide 5 there are two R2-D2s... C-3P0 will have to shoot both to be sure :)

    Technical question: watched on my Samsung BD-C6900 first disc and I got a couple times popups like you selecting a chapter, for second one I did catch a number, it was 20.
    Have you experience something like that ?
    Is it my player glitching? It has not the latest FW [1015 vs current 1021].
    Or it's something to do with new method of mastering the disc of the saga ?
    Also the player had two times pretty long delay switching layers, I would say disturbing, it strips whole short episode (when Anakin show to Jar Jar how to stop mushroom's droids). Is it a disc or a player ?

    Do you have the ability to play the same disk in another BD player or drive? That way you'd be able to see if the problem recurs. If it doesn't, then it sounds like it's a player issue.

    Well, I will try on other cheap one...
    The SOB is rejecting the disc ! Yaya ..
    I took the chance and lost - just did upgrade FW to current 1021.2, now the piece of sh^%$%$ stop taking the disc - after 2 minutes of mumbling with it do popup: "the disc does not fit the specifications". What's that ?
    EDIT. Did try Part II - loaded and do play ...

    While it's extremely rare for a BD disc to be defective, it's not impossible. However, if a FW upgrade caused you to not be able to even play the discs when before the upgrade you could at least get them to play, this is sounding like it's a player issue.

    I've heard of problems with many of the Sammy higher model # BD players. Thank God I opted for the LG690 over the Samsung BD7000 recently. BTW, have you checked the AVS Forums for any similar complaints by Samsung users?

    I'll go to there (AVS forum) , for now the case is freaking me - my old Silvania took the Part I disc and did play smoothly, no problem with the 'hit him in the nose' scene. Duh!
    'Latest is the bests' - tell me about the FW 1021.2 now...

    Sure sounds like it's your player. Either that or it is the influence of the Dark Side.

    Definitely, The Force is not strong with it, but Silvania. :)

    When starting these disks I am getting a hiss and a slight pop. This happens at 00:00:01 and then a static noise happens right when the "In A Galaxy Far far Away" appears on screen. This happens with 5 of the movies (havn't got to the 6th yet)

    My set up is a Denon AVR-989 (2809) and a Sony BDPS-550. I am running a 7.1 speaker setup with the 6th & 7th being Surround Backs. I use Monster HDMI cables.

    I have tried another blu-ray player, a Sony BDPN-460 and it makes no difference, also I bought a brand new Monster HD700 HDMI cable, also no difference.

    If I change the AMP Assign to 5.1 in the Denon, The problem goes away. So I am guessing it has to do with the 6.1 sound track on the new Star Wars disks. I have no problems with other 6.1 or 7.1 blu-ray sound tracks.

    Any ideas here?
