I've heard there were some problems with the original releases of Jurassic Park with DTS. Thanks for any help.
Well, let me ask this. Does my DTS disk still have a fully working Dolby Digital track? Also, how weak is the bass on the DTS track? Is it pathetic or just a little weaker than it should be? I might still be wrong about what numbers I saw on my disk last night. I'm almost sure I saw D2R1 though. I'll surely check when I get home tonight. I'll probably even watch the movie tonight and see what the DTS track sounds like.Sure it does, but it's only DD 2.0 if I'm not mistaken.
For all you guys with the D2R1, I would recommend checking out your local used DVD shops (ie. The Wherehouse) so you can view the disc and it's code on the hub. I've had VERY good luck with used DVDs, and their condition. Most discs have been totally MINT.
Out of curiousity, I visited a Futureshop store today and looked at the same DVD to check the packaging and the grid lines were black, not redWhen this all first happened with the DTS JP, Universal quietly repressed the DTS DVD and made no press announcments about it. So the early corrected repressings still had the black tech grid and looked identical to the original defective pressing. They only way to tell for sure what you had was to look for the code on the disc itself. Once all of this mispressing talk circulated around all the home theater sites, Universal stepped up and announced the repressings and implemented the red tech grid to tell the two apart. So there are black grid ones that are the correct repressed version. If you want to be sure you have the right one, look for one with the red tech grid.
