Sorry to hear that; I imagine it's a error in the production rather than with Zavvi - it did arrive with a shrinkwrap on package? Hopefully Zavvi will make it good for you. I just have 20k Streets Under the Sky & Becoming Jane coming from Zavvi and I think they're both single discs.

Ah, well I don't think it is a "known issue". I bought Robin Hood off an eBay (US) seller yesterday; got a discount for taking an opened set. He was saying in the listing that it was an HD DVD/ DVD combo set and the DVD side would play in any DVD player. I contacted him & told him he might want to check that - the standard DVD side was probably Region 2 PAL. He got back to me, telling me he had several of these and opened one to make sure. According to him the first 4 discs are HD DVD/DVD combos, Episodes 1-13 (so you're missing Disc 4, episodes 10-13. The DVD side of all the discs is Region 2 PAL. The 5th disc is DVD region 2 PAL only, with extra features.

I got the opened set for around $30 shipped.

He seems like a pretty decent guy, and has other imports for sale, in addition to another copy of Robin Hood.

Mine from zavvi.co.uk has reached my friend in Finland and is waiting to be shipped to me (with some other stuff so I need to wait a couple of extra days). I'm hoping there are no missing discs...
