    I just recently got a JVC 75 Progressive Scan / DVD-A DVD player. There was a promo to get Mummy Returns DVD. Just got it in the mail and they sent the Pan and Scam version.
    I guess they think Progressive scan DVD players are purchased by Joe 6 Pack, with a 13 inch TV, who can't stand the black bars.
    I won't blaspheme my system by putting this crap on it.
    I haven't decided wether I'll call customer service and try to get the real film or just sell this one unopened. I hated the 1st Mummy (well, I actually like the Karloff, I'm talking about the one this is a sequel to). It was WAY too stupid. Is this film better?

    I like them both. The Mummy (I won't call it the original [​IMG]) was better 'factually', but the sequal is more entertaining (the bus trip thro london was great [​IMG] My spotters (!) eye did notice that whilst they'd remoeved the modern traffic lights from Tower Bridge, the VERY modern visitors centre was on full view [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Made it even funnier IMO tho...

    If you thought the first one was stupid and hated it, you probably won't like the sequel either.

    In 2 weeks Mummy Returns will be released here in Denmark in a nifty 2-disc version with 6.1 DTS ES sound. It's nice to get the best edition for once [​IMG]

    That's insulting! Sounds like one so-called offer I saw once that would give you a few free VHS TAPES if you bought a new big-screen TV!

    Dude, here's what you do. 1st don't open the dvd and take it to Wal-Mart's customer service and tell them you want to exchange it or get another movie.

    No Wal-marts that I know of in north NJ. Maybe we don't buy enough P&S movies.

    KimK, TMR in DTS-ES Discrete? I'm jealous.
    Peter, If I were you I would call JVC CS and demand they send you the widescreen version. Unless the fine print states the free dvd is only available in P&S there is no reason for them not to do this. L

    Peter,
    I purchased the XV-SA70 and never sent for the free DVD. I figured they would send P&S since that was all that was out there for rent.
    Thx......Shawn [​IMG]

    Peter,
    There is a Walmart on Rt 10 at Ledgewood circle. If you are using I80, it should be between exits 30 and 28.
