    If you have the original release of JP (DTS) version without the Bass-Audio remix, you can return to Universal for a FREE replacement. Thank goodness Universal Studios Home Video is stepping up to the plate on this mistake!
    If your DVD has the code # D2R1 on the inside hub this is the earlier production disc. If yours has D2R2 and a red technical grid on the back of the packaging, then you have the corrected version.
    For complete description of return policy go to www.thedigitalbits.com/mytwocentsa43.html
    I will be returning mine this week!

    John: I thought only a WS version was available with DTS audio soundtrack. I was aware there was three versions of this disc.
    1.) JP 4:3 format
    2.) JP WideScreen
    3.) JP WideScreen DTS
    I have never seen the JP 4:3 DTS version.
    Jeff: That is what I gather from the DigitalBits report, I will have to check it myself when I get home this A.M.

    Jeff, I just got home from work and checked out my DVD. I do indeed have the "Bass Inept" version! This was tricky to ascertain. But by looking at the top of your disc, near the center, you can see faint print around the holes parameter when the lights catches it just right. Look CAREFULLY for the numbers mentioned to determine which disc you own.

    So what's the deal? I got the DTS version of JP and LW when they shipped. So does the NEW DTS version of JP have a more noticeable audio quality difference than the original? I always thought that the DTS version of JP was lacking in the LFE area. Thanks.

    Thanks for the post Tony. I am going to hold on to mine and wait for a "beefed" version from Universal if it ever comes.

    quote: Strangely enough, however, the DVD contains the original theatrical DTS track[/quote]
    Crap [​IMG] They moved a lot of the bass from LFE to the mains and the LFE level itself is 4db down on what it should be (even compared to the Dolby track). It's not the theatrical DTS track but a crapped-up version of the same one used for the DD version.

    Thank you Dr. Rob. You beat me to it.
    Basically, there's too many "know-it-alls" on the internet that have no idea what the hell they're talking about. I'm glad people like you are here to tell it like it is!!!
    Regards,

    Could you explain your last comment. I am not sure what you mean, and do not want to be reading into it incorrectly.

    Darren M,
    I believe DanR is referring to the dvdreview.com statement that the mix is the original. That is a direct quote from Universal's press release, not a legit part of the review. It should have been noted as such, or we have to assume the author of the statement agrees, in which case Dan's comment about a "know-it-all" is 100% correct, being that the statment is faulty.

    I believe that Universal has stated that the returns would take 4 to 6 weeks! Seems like a riduculous time period to wait, but we are talking about Universal here. Let's hope they make a huge DVD rebound soon as they dominated this summer's box office!

    What is very interesting is that I just picked this up at J&R Music World 2 days ago.
    It does NOT have the red tech box on the back, yet it does have the d2r2 code.

    Chris,
    Quite plainly, Universal DVD is fucked up right now. Of course the one you saw doesn't have the red grid, neither does mine. They are making this up as they go along.
    I truly believe Universal is only doing what they are trying to do now because they got "caught". They still don't care about their customers, and are treating this solely as a public relations nightmare that needs fixing.
    The bottom line for me is that I just don't trust Universal anymore. (Please also refer to The Mummy Returns and the Ultimate Edition / DTS thread as further evidence of why we shouldn't trust these guys.)
    Regards,
    Dan

    Name of Shakespeare Play: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING,
    which equals difference in new dts from old dts JP
    Threads about this topic remind me of:
    1.Abbott & Costello's "WHO'S ON FIRST"
    2.The tongue twister in THE COURT JESTER-how did it go? The vestle with the pestle, or something like that.
