Monk - Season 1... No Sound on Bonus Features
 
I just got through watching the 4-disc set of Monk (Tony Shalhoub). When I got to the bonus features, there was no sound... only the music soundtrack played.

Do I just have a bad disc or is this a problem with the release? :confused: The actual episodes played fine.

I didn't play them all the way through but just a snippet from each seems to be ok on my copy.

From the review over at TVShowsOnDVD:

The audio is messed up with these featurettes. The voices come from the rear speakers while the music comes from the front three. Very strange.
Could that have something to do with the problem you're having?

That is exactly the problem I'm having. You can hear some sound (like a buzz).. but can't tell what they're saying.

Monk is one of my favorite shows and I feel cheated that the extras are screwed up. I thought it probably was a release problem since everything else worked fine.

Is Universal going to do anything about this?? I know that's a stupid question. :rolleyes:

I tried it on a player in another room and it worked okay...

Wow, I should be getting mine any day. I'll keep an eye out.

Whoops - read the title as "No Sound or Bonus Features"...I was gonna say, no bonus features, perhaps...but no sound = no sale! :)

It's REVERSED!!!!
 
The audio is there...but it's phase inversed. Which means it's louder in the back speakers than the front. It's annoying but not worth my time to care for bonus features. If you have 5.1 or 7.1 then you'll notice...but if you've got stereo or listen on your computer then it's fine. At this late date it's a stupid, stupid mistake. Hopefully someone will get fired for this but personally I still love my set. (Of course if they recall it I'd appreciate trading it in for the correct audio.)

So am I the only one who watched these on a 5.1 system? Or maybe this is not with all the sets? I might need to replace it if someone knows for sure that their set isn't phase inversed.

The sound on the bonus features is in 5.1?! That's new to me.

Maybe not...though the box does say Dolby Surround (5.1) but it's authored wrong. So if you have a 5.1 system then it will be really quiet in your front speakers and loud in the back. So if you've got a 5.1 system but don't have the rear speakers installed I could imagine the problem above where there seems to be no sound.

I watched them on my DVD player that is only hooked up to the TV sound-wise and it was fine. This is a great set - can't wait until season 2!

You do understand that it's still messed up right? Watching it on a 2.0 system doesn't tell you anything about inversed audio since you don't have enough speakers to inverse. Still...like I said before, it's not that big of deal for me since the audio is only screwed up on those extras.

Any signs of a recall for the monk extras disc since the audio appears to be a problem on everyone's DVD?

nemein 08-21-04 05:21 AM

It must not be on all of them though. In my new setup the DVD player audio is not connected to the TV at all so you have to play it through the amp/5.1 system (when I did the previous test I had a different setup and was listening to it through the TV). I went through these last night and everything seemed fine.
