    I just found out that the jan 22 release of Nine inch nails fragility dvd can be bought in Dts or DD but not both of the same disc? I have never heard of such a way to do dvd's.

    Anyone here think this is a tad bit odd?

    I am going to go with the dts version, I think dts will sound better for this group.

    Originally there was supposed to be one DVD with both DTS and DD 5.1. Why they couldn't do it that way I don't know, would've be nice. Note that if you get the DTS version it won't have on the fly camera angle changing capabilities for the scenes with mulitple angles available, due to bitrate restrictions. The extra angles will be available in a separate section. See here:

    With that said, I'm getting the DTS version. What I don't know is originally there was also going to be a limited edition DVD version with a bonus disc. Whether both audio versions will be available with the bonus disc I don't know. There is also supposed to be a deluxe CD version that has two discs as opposed to the normal single CD version. All these different versions are getting confusing and they keep changing the the versions. Now I've heard the bonus disc "Still" will be available thru mail order if you don't be the deluxe version. However, I don't know if "Still" is the bonus disc that is supposed to come with the CD or the DVD and what the other bonus disc will contain.

    from what iv'e read, still is the bonus disk that comes with the cd, and will be available i think in limited quantities for mail order, but the limited edition cd is in fact that, limited, i dont think you can even order it from amazon anymore. (my cd shipped today, but not the dvd yet). and the songs on there are like 11 or so 'deconstructed' songs. i think that means basically like nin unplugged

    i never heard of any bonus disk ever coming with the dvd, so that is new to me, i also ordered the dts. reznor himself said it sounds much better. oh, and i am very looking foward to this release.

    I'm going for the D.D. 5.1 version. One of the things that i really enjoy in music dvds is the multi-angle feature. It's a fantastic idea. As much as i would like to have this dvd in DTS, i much prefer to be able to switch angles in real time.

    I'm just glad the dvd is finally coming out.

    Regards, António

    Wow [​IMG], i thought this multi-angle feature was for all of the performance. If what you say is true (and i do believe you), then that's just a poor excuse for multi-angle. Still, i think i will go for the DD version.
    And i agree with you: why split the performance over two discs!!! it breaks the flow completely.
    Why can't they get it right... [​IMG]

    You're right Shane D, there isn't going to be any special addition of the DVD. They finally opened the official web page and it has all the info on the various releases.
