    Forgive me but are you some sort of shit-stirrer?
    You never said you had any problems with your copy.
    This thread looks like the perfect place for complainers who really should get out more.

    looks like EMI did a quick cardboard sleeves patch job. plain white cardboard sleeves labelled disc one, two etc on top of previously made disc holder grooves. atleast no scratches this time.

    Default Glitches on the Blu-ray

    Thank you goa for the information and the amazon link !

    Yes, on the Blu-ray there are devinitive two glitches in the 5.1 Surround Mix
    at the end of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Part 9" at minute 43:55 und 44:10.

    And I think on this disc it seems there are a few more glitches: I found one in Storm Thorgersons
    short film at minute 4:10, there you can also hear this strange click sounds.

    Anyone else have this problems with the european edition?

    I will send the Blu-ray back soon to EMI to get the promised replacement disc. Although,
    I don't think they are able to correct all glitches, unless sombody at EMI have mercy and
    listen very carefully to every little second of this ****ing disc.

    And to top it all, and as to expected, all four discs at the bottom of the box were unlocked,
    and as a matter of fact paper-dusty and a little scratched.

    Quality management is sliding these days at EMI ...

    Oh, it's that simple?!

    Anyway, thanks for the tip-off Ron.

    Can the problems on the 5.1 mix be checked for without a 5.1 system? I don't have a 5.1 system, ordered my set from the Uk, and don't want a dodgy disc, as at some point I will have a 5.1 system. I do have a blu-ray player though (well, a PS3 ...).

    If you only have 2.0 do the other channels get mixed down into the 2.0 output, or are they just left off. Excuse my ignorance on this matter, as I am indeed very ignorant in this area of technology.

    My Sony Blu-Ray (BDP-S370) player gives me the option of mixing surround into 2.0.

    No, these glitches are audible on a full adjusted 5.1 system, as well
    as on a "normal" stereo system. Also, the glitches were confirmed
    at exactly the same positions by other amazon customers.

    Default Any appologies by Messrs. Floyd?

    Why do we blame EMI only? Our heroes all are having well paid managers, so where is the official statement by the band? :finger:
