    Stefan,
    I guess that answers my question above (post 128). Apparently the Panasonics cut the edge right off the technology that Paramount utilized in this mishmash.

    Just a heads-up to everyone. Universal and DreamWorks are now having the same problem with copies of Taken on DVD. Same interlacing problem. Deluxe did the authoring and is looking into it.

    Did Deluxe do the authoring on Monty Python?

    I've been holding off on purchasing this DVD. Can somebody post screenshots so I can see what the problem is?

    I'm sorry, I looked through all the posts, and I didn't see the number to call to get the replacement. Could someone who called, post it?

    Thanks!

    Thank you for contacting Universal Studios. With the advent of cutting-edge
    technology in the DVD format, a small number of DVD players do not have the
    technical capability to take full advantage of the "Monty Python's The
    Meaning of Life" disc format. Universal Studios Home Video has become aware
    of a player specific issue which results in the appearance of jagged video
    interlacing, on disc 1 only. Disc 2 is NOT affected. Consumers with an
    incompatible player may mail back Disc 1 to Universal and receive a
    replacement. To obtain a pre-paid USPS envelope in which to mail back the
    original Disc 1, please call 1-800-433-4673. Replacement discs are currently
    scheduled to be available mid-November 2003.

    I need to call and get this mailer, My player doesn't have a problem, but if I upgrade down the road....[​IMG]

    I just called for the BTTF mailer, at first i thought it was a recording, then i realized someone was really speaking to me, and apparently English wasn't a first language.....

    On a side note: I just picked up Jurassic Park and discovered that it had the faulty DTS track, did they do a mailer for this as well? and if so what's the number for that?

    Thanks.

    Oh Universal. When will you stop with your sub par DVD authoring?

    Anyhoo, I called the Canadian Universal number today. Left a message, who knows if I'll ever see my mailer. However, they were quite good with the BTTF exchange, so I have high hopes.
