Recently, I've noticed some horrible encoding from new original DVDs. My wife and I rented Master & Commander - and whenever there was fog - you can see the pixelation of the mist within the fog. Kinda looked as if the picture was converted to 256 colors. Very noticeable. Now I seem to find more and more pixelation in DVD movies than before during dark or smoke/foggy scenes. Again, these are from original DVD discs - not backups.
