Blu-Ray Glitches: First Avatar, now Saving Private Ryan?

May 17, 2010 by  

It seems Blu-Ray is getting so popular, they’re forgetting quality control in some cases. First Avatar and its numerous reported Blu-Ray issues with freezes, chapter graphics appearing without wanting them, and subtitles not appearing properly. And now reported issues with the Saving Private Ryan BR discs.

The thing: audio synchronization in at least one of the chapters of Saving Private Ryan that got past Technicolor and Paramount, and the bunch ended up being recalled. New versions will arrive at retail on the 18th — check for a yellow UPC label to make sure you’re getting a fixed disc, and you should be all set.

It’s sad to see these growing pains, but its nice to see that people are clamoring for fixed versions of BR discs, meaning enough people care to raise a fuss. HD home video has come a long way, but it still has a long way to go, apparently.
