I received a replacement set from Amazon today and am seeing the same problem. Whenever I attempt to play the 2005-produced extras on the UHD disc, I get Dolby Digital audio but NO video at all. Just a black screen. Obviously not a defective disc issue unless they're ALL defective.

So, I played around a bit and discovered that if I disable Dolby Vision on my Panasonic UB9000, which forces the player to use only HDR10 playback, the video on these extras is just fine. Can anyone else enable DV on a Panasonic UB9000/820 and let me know if they get the same result, or a different result?
Anyone?

This may not help you much, but the extras are playing fine for me on an OPPO 203. That said, I don't have a Dolby Vision display in the house. The player is connected to a 1080p TV and a projector with HDR10.
Thanks Josh. The problem appears to be related to Dolby Vision, but is it the authoring of the disc, the player, or the display that's at fault? Arrow is investigating on their end but I haven't heard back from them yet. I will say that I've never had a playback issue with my setup until this DV hiccup with Dune.

Dolby Vision can be weird at times. I was watching my iTunes digital copy of Pitch Black on my FireTV 4K stick [a 1080p file] on my 4K TV, and the FireTV insisted on applying Dolby Vision grading to the film. I had to manually turn off Dolby Vision on the stick to get it to play properly.

Announcement from Koch Films:

Dear DUNE fan, maybe the news about our DUNE - Ultimate Edition has already reached you via our social media channels. We would be happy to provide you with the latest information here:

The cover of the edition is final. DUNE will appear in a noble acrylic glass box, decorated with foam and velvet paper. We apologize that you haven't heard from us for a long time. We have had a hard time finding a service provider who meets our quality standards 100% with this special edition. But we have found what we are looking for and are still working flat out on the Ultimate Edition. Unfortunately, this also means that we have to postpone the edition's release day to February 10, 2022.

BUT: All fans who have ordered an Ultimate Edition in our shop by October 10, 2021 will receive it before Christmas. Why? Our manufacturer, which we commissioned for this edition, has only limited production capacities available. That is why it will deliver to us in two batches, which enables us to send the Ultimate Edition to the first pre-orderers before Christmas.

Are you waiting for further editions due to the DUNE postponement? Due to the pending Dune Edition, you may be currently waiting for further editions that are part of this order. Of course, the postponement of the Dune Edition does not mean that you have to wait for these editions until Christmas. We will send them to you in the next few days as a partial delivery, of course free of charge. We can promise you: The additional waiting time for the DUNE - Ultimate Edition is worth it! At the same time, of course, we hope for your understanding for our decision and the delay. We are aware that your pre-orders gave us a great leap of faith, which we of course want to fulfill in the best possible way.

Please note: If you have any further questions about your order, please contact our customer service directly by email at [email protected].

Many greetings,
Koch Films

This seems to be the acrylic cases. Interesting design. The only other set I have with an Acrylic type case is the original UK Hitchcock LE

Well there's THIS little known film

;) ...

LOA is just a thin plastic slipcover/slipsheet -- not even sure what to call it, but sure is a nice item except I have to store it on my LD shelf. Looking at the Dune item, that looks to be a much thicker hardshell display case like the Hitchcock set of like those security cases many stores use as theft prevention. maybe it's not what I'm imagining though.

Just crossed my mind that folks have called those store security cases Coffins for years since they kill all slipcovers that enter, so maybe an inside joke as many people have though Headstone at first glance.

Does anyone have a problem at 45 to 47 minute mark of the film (in 4K), as some report over at bluray.com?

I'm not going to visit that forum. What is the alleged problem?

My copy of the Arrow disc played fine on an OPPO 203.
From what i remember, freezing and intense pixelation.
It seems the UHD disc doesn't play well at approximately those timestamps in some players.
