I don't want to deal with replacing a dic all the time. I hope Warner doesn't drop Blu-ray, but this doesn't look good at all.

I guess I didn't read the signs right.

I think they should make the title Bonus View and then recall all the "working around the limitation of the platform" versions.

The only way it is going to really matter however is if lots of people complain, but I suspect there won't be.

"We spoke with a Warner rep late Thursday, who confirmed to us that the studio is aware of the 'T3' issue and is investigating its source, but said that they have no immediate plans to recall Blu-ray copies of the title currently on store shelves."

So Warner is willing to have a replacement program for people who have already bought the movie but not recall and replace the faulty product (that is already on the shelf) for people who want to buy the movie?

What is the deal with that?

I wonder if they had to limit it to 1080i due to space constraints. By having two separate copies of the movie, they're limiting themselves to less than 25 GB for the movie. They should have just waited and put this out as a true profile 1.1 title, but maybe they are just trying to get these titles out the door while they can.

They've already announced the replacement program, so this theory makes very little sense.

Besides, it's most likely that they just reused the HD-DVD encode for the main film, and I suspect that fits within 25GB anyway. And the PIP encode certainly doesn't have to be as high bitrate as the main movie.

I do wish they would have just used real IME... but even then I'm sure they wouldn't have bothered to re-encode it for Blu-ray's higher capacity, so I guess it doesn't matter in the long run anyway.
