  1. unable to view one side on dvd. No reason given. Poor description and instruction.

  2. All of my other HD-DVDs work fine on the 360. Even if the 360’s HD-DVD playback is flawed in some way this DVD should have been authored in such a way as to work around the 360’s shortcomings. There aren’t that may players on the market to test and I’m guessing the 360 is one of the most popular. There should at least be a disclaimer in the product description. People seemed to think the Spring Update would fix the 360 so this would play. It didn’t. I think they need to at least setup an exchange program.

  3. I waited several weeks after ordering for the new version of this highly-rated disc to become available. Consequently, I was very disappointed that the new material (Side 1) would not load into either my new Oppo DVD981 or my old Samsung DVD player. Side 2 – the 2003 version – loads without difficulty, but as reviewers for that disc have noted the actual calibration information is hard to find. Since I bought this disc specifically for the new material, I’m afraid I’ll have to return it.

  4. The DVE representatives said that the XBOX 360 Spring Dashboard updated (which was released this week) would fix the issue with this disc freezing in the 360’s HD player. They apparently did not test this fix when they made that statement because it’s still freezing after the update.

    I ordered this disc, 2 day UPS shipping, in anticipation of it working after the update (as was promised) and I can’t tell you how disappointed I am with both DVE and Microsoft. It’s not even the glitch I’m the most upset by, it’s been the stone wall lack of communication with their customers that is unforgivable. In the age of communication, NOT communicating with your customers (you know, those people that buy your product so you can have money) is baffling.

  5. I pulled the DVD out of the case in mint condition brand new from Amazon. The HD side could not be read by my Samsung HT-WX70 system. I flipped it over and it instantly found the standard side of the disc. I did this over and over but the HD side would try to load and fault to “No Disc”. I found a few others with the same problem on the web but I will update my DVD player firmware first and see what happens. If it works on the HD side after the update, I will create a follow up to this message.

    Sincerely – Bill
