Blu-ray looks good, but has PAL-like audio pitch problem
on November 12, 2014
sharp picture which plays and looks good on my blu-ray player and HD TV. The remastered video looks much better than the recent re-release of the EMMA PEEL set which were simply the old old dvd copies. Remastered dvds were released in the UK.
Speaking of the UK remastered dvds...they were plagued with audio pitch problems, eventually fixed by the manufacturer. Coincidentally or not, that's also the case here. The video and runtime are the correct film speed, but the audio pitch is equivalent to the PAL format. If you're familiar with the actors or the Ntsc release, you will notice an occasional oddness to their voices here. I've returned them for a refund, and will re-purchase if they ever fix the problem. Would also be nice if they included the regular mono audio instead of only 5.1, for we who dont have a home theater.
FYI, on at least one episode the audio is sometimes out of sync (noticeable when actors are talking), specifically "Mission...Highly Improbable."
Comments about the audio pitch can be found on blu-ray forum.
