I have a Samsung blue ray player, and I am playing Dredd in 2D. However I am on to my second disc and both have sound problems. After 30 min The sound keeps going off and on every couple of minutes. Has anyone else had similar issues. I can play other blue ray discs no problem.
I experienced this too last night. Around 30mins in when Dredd has cleared the hallway and tries to speak to the Med Centre employee, the sound totally drops out and even the video playback stuttered on mine. Brand new disc, no fingerprints on it etc. I carried on watching thinking it was a temporary thing but the sound continued to drop out and video playback suffered too. Really confused as the first 30mins played fine, I thought a compatability issue would mean it was like this from the start.
Admittedly I am watching it on a piece of cr*p cheap Blu-Ray player ('Limit' is the brand), but all of my other discs play fine, including new releases like Warrior and Jaws.
Could this be down to firmware? If not I'll have to send for a refund which is gutting as I love the movie and was really looking forward to owning a copy.
I had the same problem guys. Bought mine from TESCO though. Took it back and ended up having the DVD instead. Strangely it happens in exactly the same spot as you guys. I have had previous experience with this problem on the remake of Conan. Multiple copy's had the same problem. I have an LG BluRay.
I have a LG BD550 blu-ray player. The sound on Dredd was fine (excellent in fact) at the beginning of the film, then around 30 minutes in it got increasingly distorted and choppy, becoming completely unbearable a few minutes later. I thought this must be a disc issue, but after I updated the firmware using a download from the LG website, the problem went away.
I have a region free player, but if I update the firmware, my player will be locked to region A, so it would be completely unwatchable anyway. I still emailed Amazon about the defectiveness of the disc. I want to email the distributor EIV but I can't find an email address for their company.
yes i to have had 2 disc,s with the same problem as you have...just sending the 2nd one back now . bought the hobbit plays brill.. on blue ray ..i just want to watch the film Dredd... frustrating must be the disc .. so people beware
