Default Harry Potter 5 Australian HD DVD question

EzyDVD has just added a bunch of Warner titles to their HD DVD blowout sale. I was wondering if anyone knew whether the Australian release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a port of the 2-disc UK edition with all of the bonus features in HD video, or if it's a port of the 1-disc US release with SD supplements?

I'll look into it, I just order this last night from dvdcrave.com in Aussi land, It was under $14 including shipping and has already shipped,

Unfortunetly it looks like it's out of stock already. But FYI: I bought 7 out of stock titles from them a week ago and they also have all shipped.

**Edit ** I've checked a couple aussie site's and they all look to say that it's a single disc release.

Hmmm.... well, let us know when you receive it. I've found a lot of retailer listings to be inaccurate.

Thanks.

Smokin' Aces is another one I have a question about. EzyDVD lists it as a Combo disc, but I'm pretty sure there aren't any Combo discs in Australia.

To my knowledge some Warner releases like "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" were released in Australia so that they took the U.S. Combo and sold it as Australian normal release with local packaging without any Combo pricing. Sometime last year some people were importing some of those from Australia as they got the same U.S. Combo disc but at a cheaper price from there.

I'm pretty sure this doesn't apply to Smokin' Aces (Universal release) though.
