The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) UPDATED

Postby Brent_Reid » 20 Jun 2018 05:46

The UHD's audio defaults to Dolby TrueHD 7.1 (Dolby Atmos must be manually selected).
Add to the UHD listing that the included BD is 1.78:1.
Add to the UHD and BD listings that the BD's opening crawl is in German.

All as per the Beaver review.

The UHD doesn't have a standard Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track. There is the Dolby Atmos track that has a core TrueHD 7.1 track which is standard. Are you saying that the Atmos track doesn't show as "Atmos" on the receiver and must be forced to Atmos settings on the receiver?

Blimey James, I don't own it; I'm going by the Caps-a-holic BD Info report and the Beaver review. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I tried asking DVDBeaver but no reply yet. Updated about the opening crawl.

Y'know, James, looking at the comparison I've just noticed Turbine Media's previous Ultimate Collector's Edition BD has a choice of an English or German opening crawl, via the multi-angle feature. I assume it defaults to German though. It's possible TM's latest BD and UHD do exactly the same and DVDbeaver have overlooked it, yes?

Amazing how complicated these seemingly simple comparisons get. It's always a relief when someone like Warner or Universal release just one disc right around the world, and get it right first time, with no recalls or replacement programmes!
