  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Could it be an issue with your player?

    I noticed the audio seemed slightly behind the video when I watched the fugitive arc on my bedroom system, which hasn't been calibrated. I didn't notice anything in the theater which has been calibrated. Is your Blu ray player running straight to your TV, or is there a receiver/switch in between?

    I thought I was crazy, but I noticed it as well. Just a little bit off. Other than that, they looked and sounded fantastic. And hlc88, the director's cut difference in Shades of Reason is the shot of Pre Viszla's body lying on the floor right after Maul chops his head off.

    I watched the Onderon arc and noticed the exact same thing. It wasn't completely off but the lip synch didn't seem right.

    Can I ask? What region are you guys in? 1 or 2? I'm in 2 and will check my copy again. If you are all noticing it why didn't I?

    Region 1 here. It's not an in-your-face audio synch issue but I just happened to be looking at the characters lips and noticing they were just a tad behind the audio. Try and look at some dialog heavy scenes. I'll try and post a specific place to look.

    There's definitely an issue. Does anyone have the Season 5 discs from the big box set? Perhaps they're printed properly. Something's wrong with the Season 5 discs I'm afraid. I've tried them going straight to the TV and through my receiver. The sync is off both ways. Once you notice it, you focus on it. What a shame.

    It's extremely unlikely that the discs are any different in the box set besides the artwork. There also wouldn't be bad "batches" of the disc. This is a problem that is inherent to the way the disc was authored and will therefore be present on all versions, at least on the US versions. It's possible that some other versions with different languages might be OK but it's likely they all came from the same source.

    Warner discs are Region Free, they just change the box and the writings on the disc but the discs are all the same.

    The A/P scene definitely sounds like it has potential. It is a shame the episodes didn't include those scenes.

    It's great to hear that; then they didn't wimp out and did insert it (I recall previously reading somewhere on the board that the shot of Savage after the decapitation was the replacement shot; is that one gone now?)

    The Savage shot is still there. :)


    In relation to the audio not being synced properly. No problems here. Just watched Revival, Shades of Reason, The Lawless and parts of The Jedi Who Knew Too Much and The Wrong Jedi and I could not see/hear anything wrong with the audio and syncing there. If it is present on my blu-ray set then its barely noticeable that its not going to take away from my enjoyment. But if other people here are noticing it then maybe I've just got lucky? :p

    I felt like it was in A Sunny Day in the Void, Missing in Action, and parts of the Maul arc.

    A great scene to see how the sync is off is in Lawless, as Maul holds Satine up in front of Obi-Wan. Nothing Obi says in that scene matches his lips. On my CN copy, it's perfect.

    The worst scene on mine is the beginning of Sabatage.
    Warner and/or Amazon will replace them at no cost once the problem is fixed. Blu ray and DVD glitches aren't uncommon.

    For some people the problem is not there when they use their PS3 to watch it ;)

    Sorry to hear that. For the moment I don't have other solutions ^^.
    The best would be to contact Warner and the seller and to explain them your problem.

    I guess I was assuming that everyone was watching the Blu-Ray. We should probably start specifying. Is anyone experiencing the audio sync issues watching on a regular DVD?
